We are pleased to answer your questions about the St. Leo Abbey Oblate program, even "what's a Benedictine oblate?"

The St. Leo Abbey oblates meet once a month on the first Sunday at St. Leo Abbey.  Everyone is invited. All members of the public, including non-oblates, are invited to the Oblate meetings and everyone is also invited to pray with monks daily at the abbey -- a way to seek God in the "work of God" (also known as the divine office which is a set of songs, antiphons, psalms, and readings read and sung by the monks according to an ancient pattern). For oblates and oblate novices, the prayers with the monks when you are able to visit the abbey bring us closer to the Benedictine monastic life. Map to Abbey.
