The U.S. Provincial for the Oblates of Mary Immaculate has decided that the Order, due to a lack of personnel, will be leaving Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Laredo, effective July 8, 2018. On that date, the parish will come under the pastoral care of the Diocese of Laredo. The Oblates will continue to serve Our Lady of Refuge in Eagle Pass and Sacred Heart Church in Eagle Pass.
