What do they do?I love the Benedictines, and am interested. I wear a cross of St. Benedict all the time, and pray the Monastic Diurnal (from Farnborough). I go to the TLM every week, celebrated by a holy Benedictine priest.So I’m naturally interested in Oblates. Fr Longenecker February 10, 2009 at 4:32 pmLog in to Reply An oblate seeks to follow Christ enlightened by the Rule of St Benedict and in support and solidarity with a particular Benedictine community. He does this as a lay person. It is a formal commitment which requires different levels of involvement depending on the community. You can email me for more information if you wish.
