FrontPageImageOblates of Saint Benedict are Christian men and women who choose to associate themselves with a religious community of  Benedictine Monks in order to strengthen their baptismal commitment and enrich their Christian way of life. Oblates do not take vows or live in a monastery. They continue to live in the world while they strive eagerly to live out the values of the Gospel.

Sunday Adoration for Vocations
The Blessed Sacrament is exposed every Sunday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Saint Gregory Chapel. Oblates are urged to use these times for Eucharistic adoration, if possible, especially on the Sundays of Oblate classes and meetings, to pray for vocations, and especially for vocations to the Archabbey.

Oblate Lawrence Cuda has compiled a list of books of interest to Oblates. The extensive book list, alphabetical by title, includes links to the Library of Congress, name of author, and a direct link to that title on amazon.com for those interested in purchasing a particular title. To see the list, click on Library, and select a “letter” from the chart to start with, from “A” to “Y” and lots in between.
