My dad spent time living in catholic school as a kid....the Oblates ran it....he ended up quite messed up from the abuse.....he had a grudging respect for Jesuits though....Jesuits were on the other side of the river in this city....Oblates on pop's side....
The Oblates studied for 2 years & got their priest papers as it were, the Jesuits for at least 7.....very scholarly.....
It's just a different order of the catholic church is all.....
I used to hear about these two orders all the time at the dinner table & from time to time in drunken rants as a kid.....I'm sure there are more, but this is just from my personal knowledge....

It's a sect of Catholicism. That's all. I hadn't realized that Catholics had lots of sects, but they do.
