The Oblates of the Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand will hold their next meeting on Saturday, September 16, from 1:00 p.m. ET to 3:00 p.m. in St. Gertrude Hall at Monastery Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand.

Anyone who would like to become a more spiritual person is invited to attend and learn more about the Oblates.

The meeting topic will be “The Rule of St. Benedict,” to be presented by Oblates Lynn Belli and Sharon Bittner. Six new candidates will also be welcomed into the Oblate program.

Oblates are Christian women and men from all walks of life who associate themselves with a specific Benedictine monastery, such as the monastery in Ferdinand. The spirituality of St. Benedict can be adapted to the life of anyone seeking to live the Gospel message. The Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand guide and support Oblates by providing regular Oblate meetings, a quarterly newsletter, and by various enrichment opportunities.
