Oblates and Associates



Associates and oblates of the Community are Christian women and men, single or married, who are committed to God and the Community.  They, with the help of the Sisters, develop a rule of life based on God’s love and Benedictine balance. At present, there are 230 associates throughout the world, and 10 oblates.  Formation for associates is usually nine months to one year.  Oblates undertake a two-year course of formation and discernment.  For more information, please contact the Sister for the Associates and Oblates.
