Inquirers and Guests
Inquirers and guests are welcome to participate in the Open Meetings held on Sunday afternoon or Tuesday evening during September, November, January, March and May. Sunday Meetings begin at 3:00 and Tuesday evening meetings begin at 7:00. Both sessions last about 1 1/2 hours. The meetings include shared Lectio on a selected passage of the Rule of Benedict and small group interaction. During 2022 - 2023 we will be using chapters/passsages about obedience and silence for Lectio. For more information contact Sr. Antoinette at email@example.com or 317-787-3287 extension 3022.

Alternative to Sunday/Tuesday Meetings
An Intensive formation for Inquirers was held from Tuesday through Friday, October 11-14, 2022. Sessions included group Lectio on selected passage from the Rule of Benedict on silence and obedience. These sessions used the same passages from the Rule that are used on Sundays and Tuesdays through the year. The difference is in the time-frame. Intensive is just that--we do in four days what Sunday and Tuesday groups do bi-monthly from September through May.
This Intensive event is open to oblates every year and alternately to oblate candidates and inquirers. In October 2022 Inquirers attended. Contact Sr. Antoinette, email@example.com for more information. Registration is required to attend.
