The Benedictine Sisters of Mount Angel are holding a gathering for those who want to inquire about becoming a monastery oblate. Benedictine oblates are laypeople 18 or older who become formally affiliated with the Sisters.  

The inquiry session — set for 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, July 19, at the monastery — includes a free lunch.  

Oblates continue to live and work in their own home community, but essentially become "lay members" of a particular Benedictine community and promise to share the Benedictine way of life.

The Benedictine Sisters of Mt. Angel have accepted oblates since 1975. They offer a program they say will enrich and deepen the spirituality of those who join. Oblates learn about Benedictine life, the teachings of St. Benedict and monastic scriptural prayer.

The word “oblate" means "an offering of oneself.” The practice of associating with a Benedictine monastery dates to the 9th century.
