For details of Ealing Abbey Oblates
Minster Oblates who live at a distance from the Abbey and find it
difficult to attend the monthly Oblate day, may be interested in
St Scholastica’s Chapter, which meets in London three times a year.
- Aberdeen Chapter of Benedictine Oblates
A new oblate chapter met for the first time on Wednesday, 2nd February 2011 in Aberdeen. “We had three oblates attending and the meeting went well”, Brian Milne, founding member of the oblate group reports. Brian is an Oblate at Pluscarden Abbey and Sacristan at St.Peter’s Catholic Church. “We are expecting another two oblates to join us at our next meeting on 2nd March and are planning to meet on the first Wednesday every month. It is hoped that the Chapter will provide a Community for Oblates, especially for those who reside in the Aberdeen and surrounding area of Scotland, and a gateway for those who have an interest in Benedictine Spirituality.” Meetings will take place from 7.30pm in Donview House, Sheltered Complex Seaton Crescent, Seaton, Aberdeen AB24 1TZ.
