New Oblates and Oblate Candidates

On June 28, we celebrated our Foundation Day–61 years of blessing!  On that day at Evening Praise, Sisters renewed their monastic promise and new Oblates and Oblate candidates were received.  Kathleen Allen, Robert Eichner and Brian Peterson made their oblation.  Andrea Langeland and Molly Cady became Oblate candidates.  With joy we welcomed them!  At the end of Evening Praise, the Oblate Silent Retreat began.
