Vocation Voices

 Father Harold Fisher, OMI

 

Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate(OMI)

 How long in Vocation Ministry:  7 years

Birthplace:  LaGrange, IL

Favorite Movie:  Force Awakening

Favorite TV Show:  Law and Order SVU

Favorite Vacation Spot:  Poland

Poland was a place on my bucket list of places to visit since childhood.  The reason that I always wanted to visit Poland it is my father’s homeland.  The dream was realized last summer when I went on a pilgrimage to Poland for World Youth Day 2016.

There is so much rich culture with the music, food and beautiful churches throughout the country.  I even learned some simple polish phrases during my stay there.  I would love to return to visit other spots that were not possible this summer.

Dream Vocation Spot:  Cruise

Favorite Song:  “Trading My Sorrows”

Favorite drink:  I love trying different flavors of coffee.

What do I enjoy most about being a missionary?  Being among the people and seeing what God is doing in their lives.

Best Vocation Practices:  To have an affiliate program that meets monthly where discerners can become more acquainted with the community.  This can include inviting discerners to join the community for special community celebrations (founders day, vow ceremony for novice, etc.).
