Benedictine Oblates are lay persons who associate themselves with a Benedictine monastic community to share in their search for God. Oblates strive to incorporate Benedictine values and spirituality into their everyday lives, incorporating the Divine Office and reflection on Scripture as they are able. They do not live in a religious community or take vows. They and the members of the Abbey try to be of mutual support. The Abbey hosts special days of prayer and reflection for Oblates twice a year.
