A Different Kind of Meeting

    This past Saturday, we had a regularly scheduled Oblate meeting at the monastery, but in a different way.  Since March, because of concerns related to the Coronavirus there was a suspension of regular meetings.  The “gathering” we had this weekend was a virtual one through the use of several computers and phones equipped with cameras – a mode of communication that has become quite common these days in workplaces and social groups.  Although this is only a temporary solution, it was a good “breath of fresh air” for the monks and Oblates to finally see and interact with one another.  Sixteen Oblates and two monks participated in the meeting and the feedback afterward was positive.  The meeting in July will finally be in-person to celebrate the Feast of St. Benedict.  For more information about our Oblate program click here.
