Becoming an Oblate

Numerous women and men want to share in the life and commitments of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, but do not wish to become a Sister. Some become oblates, by committing themselves to seeking God through prayer, and to being neighbour to all those they encounter.

Oblate inquirers usually join a group where they will have an opportunity to learn more about Good Samaritan Benedictine spirituality, to pray and to share meals with a community of oblates or Good Samaritan Sisters. After a period of formation an oblate inquirer may request to make a fuller commitment to becoming an oblate.
