Oblate News & Events

Upcoming Opportunities

Our December Yankton Oblate Meeting is on Sunday, December 17, 2017, at 1:00 pm in the Monastery Chapter Room. Since the next two chapters are so short, we will discuss both chapters this month: chapter 29 on “Marriage and Family,” and chapter 30 on “The Single Life.”
The new people planning to become Oblates will prepare the second lesson in their book. Both groups will meet at the same time at 1:00 pm. Bob Fullenkamp and Luana Johnson are praying for more religious vocations to our Monastery during the month of December. This December the Sisters will not meet with the Oblates after our monthly meeting. We plan to do that in the spring when our two couples, who attended the International Oblate Meeting in Rome, can tell us about their experiences in Rome.
