Welcome to the home page of the Oblates of Saint Benedict, affiliated with Saint Vincent Archabbey.
Oblates 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 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. at St. 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.
