Oblates of St. Benedict
What Is An Oblate of St.
Benedictine Oblates are Christian women and men who choose to
affiliate themselves with a Benedictine Monastery while continuing
to live and work in their own homes and communities. Benedictine
Oblates publicly promise to live the Benedictine way of life and the
monastic values of prayer, community, hospitality and service in
their own milieu.
Our Oblate community is
ecumenical, coming from a variety of Christian traditions including
Anglican, Lutheran, Mennonite, Catholic and others.

Why Become a Benedictine
Men and women become Oblates to be supported and enriched in their
seeking of God, in particular through praying the liturgy of the
hours and lectio divina, rooted in scripture.
Being an Oblate of St. Benedict is a way of life.
This is what the community of Oblates
- Monthly meetings
including sessions, discussion and sharing.
- Liturgy of the Hours
and a meal with the community following our meetings.
- Monthly study sessions
for Oblate candidates.
- Support in prayer
- A retreat day each
- Opportunity to
participate in the Sisters' community conference retreat.
- The ongoing support of
the Monastic community.
