Make Their Promises
Vespers with our Community on October 10, 2020, Marc
Porter and Lena Jositas made their final oblation as Oblates of
St. Benedict Monastery, marking the completion of
their year-long oblate novitiate. Our Prior Fr.
Damien accepted Marc and
Lena’s oblation in the brief but meaningful
ceremony. Due to “social distancing” those
attending the ceremony were limited
to their immediate family and the members of the
A Benedictine Oblate is a lay
person, male or female, married or single, who
promises to live the Rule of St. Benedict according to
their state in life, while living in the world.
