The Oblates of the Virgin Mary is a religious order founded by the Venerable Bruno Lanteri, who was born on 12 May 1759 in Northern Italy and died 5 August 1830.

Lanteri grew up in a religious household and developed a strong love for the Virgin Mary at the age of four after his mother died. His attraction to what he called "silence and seclusion" prompted him to enter the Carthusians at the age of seventeen. The Oblates of Mary Most Holy began in 1816 as a diocesan congregation.

The Oblates of the Virgin Mary received papal approval from Pope Leo XII on September 1, 1826, almost four years before Lanteri's death. The Oblates of the Virgin Mary came to the United States in 1976. As of 2010, the congregation has expanded into Massachusetts, Colorado, Illinois, California, and a new seminary and retreat center in the Philippines.
