In some cities, there are enough oblates to form a group called
a chapter. The chapter is a small local community of believers
associated with Saint Meinrad and living by the Rule of
St. Benedict. They support one another and join together in
prayer and spiritual discovery. Currently, Saint Meinrad Archabbey
has 17 oblate chapters throughout the country.
This is the Mission Statement for chapters of Benedictine
Oblates of Saint Meinrad:
We, Benedictine Oblates of Saint
Meinrad Archabbey, are Christian men and women, lay and ordained,
living in the world, united by the holy Rule of St.
Benedict. We come together in Chapters to support one another
and strengthen our spiritual life through liturgical celebration,
instruction, and fellowship in Christ, so "that in all things God
may be glorified" (RB 57:9).
Oblate chapters are located in these cities:
- St. Meinrad
- Tell City
