Oblate Sunday

November 4, 2018

On the first Sunday in November when oblates are attending Mass, there is a procession afterwards to the cemetery.  The celebrant or the Abbot blesses the graves of the monks with holy water and incense, while the names of those buried there are being read.  Today was a beautiful fall morning, cool and still, evoking 'a garden of peace' such as it is meant to be.
