By now most of you will have surmised that the annual Oblate Retreat in October will have to be cancelled once more. While the Monastery is slowly opening and some guests have already been welcomed, the logistics and safety for our group have yet to be worked out. Meals and gathering for twenty or more Oblates would not yet be safe. Planning for this year’s gathering is not yet complete because of illness and recuperation for some of the planners. We know that we as Oblates have come to value these gatherings and the hope is that next October will be a time for a very happy reunion for all of us.
