FAITH FACT: St. Eugene de Mazenod – Founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate – Eugene de Mazenod was born on August 1, 1782, at Aix-en-Provence in France.  He grew up during the French Revolution and had a difficult childhood.  He still managed to enter the seminary and following ordination he returned to labor in Aix-en-Provence.  Eugene directed his ministry toward the poorest of the poor.  Later he founded the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (an international order of Roman Catholic priests and brothers).  In 1841 the Oblates sailed for missions in five continents.  After a life dedicated to spreading the Good News, Eugene died on May 21, 1861.  He was beatified by Pope Paul VI in 1975. His feast day is May 21.
