Blessed Mother, pray for us.
St. Michael the Archangel, protect us.
Sts. Francis, Montfort, Ignatius, Benedict,

He who wants to win the world for Christ
must have the courage to come into conflict with it.

The Oblates and Missioners of St. Michael (OMSM), (formerly the "Order of the Legion of St. Michael"), an incorporated non-profit Association in the State of Iowa, is currently not officially recognized by any ecclesiastical authority. OMSM is not formally associated with any diocese nor does it speak for the Church. We are, however, a defacto Association of the Christian Faithful established under canon 215 of the Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church and according to Canon Law may exist either with or without ecclesiastical recognition — such formal recognition is not required or needed for the laity to pursue perfection, holiness, evangelization, and the apostolate. The Church has already given its permission through its various decrees and declarations on the laity (see our Statement of Church Status).
The Oblates and Missioners of St. Michael is an international prayer, evangelistic, apologetic, educational, and faith Association of lay Catholics. We are brought together by private agreement amongst ourselves and reaching out to individuals worldwide, is not associated with any particular diocese.
Our mission in the tradition of the spiritualities of Carmel, Ignatius Loyola, Montfort, Francis, and Benedict, is to seek the face of God in prayer, to find Christ in community, to serve our brethren in need, and to confront Satan and his schemes in Spiritual Warfare.
Membership is composed of Oblates Secular (laity), Oblate Regulars (consecrated celibate brothers and sisters hermits), Missioners (volunteer workers in ur various apostolates), and Associates. See our Vocation Office for information on membership categories.
The Oblates and Missioners of St. Michael fully submits to the authentic teaching authority of the Pope and Magisterium of the Catholic Church, to Canon Law, and to the proper law of the Church as it applies to Associations of the Christian Faithful.
