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 Benedictine religious community 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.

Not as reported in November newsletter
The retreats at St. Vincent for summer, 2013, have been scheduled. The retreats on Benedictine spirituality are to be held on May 17-19, 2013, and May 31-June 2, 2013. I apologize for putting the wrong dates in the November newsletter. Both are to be directed by Fr. Donald. The second will be a silent retreat. Registration (and all other special arrangements) should be done through the St. Vincent Retreat Program, and not through the Oblate Office. Go here for more info ( to register for the retreat go to our retreat website )
