Eighth National Retreat for Benedictine Oblates – Organised by the Uk Oblates Team
Seventh National Retreat for Benedictine Oblates
Two years ago when we were at Douai on retreat we welcomed an oblate who was in her 99th year – you can imagine how delighted we were to welcome her back this time, now in her 101st year! Yvonne was a wonderful example to us all. It was a truly blessed 48 hours which were very much enhanced, yet again, by our facilitator, Fr Gervase, the oblate master at Douai. The theme was ‘Living as an Oblate in 2017’ – we began as comparative strangers and left as good friends.
