February 2014 Newsletter

Our February meeting will be held in the St. Joseph room of the St. Gertrude Parish Center at 2:00 p.m. next Sunday, February 23. Br. Peduru Fonseka, OSB, will be the special guest speaker for this meeting. His talk is entitled Universal Call to Holiness.

Br. Peduru will also invest Anne Spaeth as a Benedictine Oblate Novice and receive Scott Alt’s oblation as a Benedictine Oblate at the February meeting. We are pleased to welcome Anne to our chapter and we extend our congratulations to both Anne and Scott.

As our January meeting was cancelled because of the bad weather, the Minutes of the November 24, 2013
meeting are attached for approval at the February meeting.

Christ in the Cloister: Shaped by Word and Sacrament is the topic of the March 19-21 Oblate Retreat at
Saint Meinrad Archabbey. Fr. Vincent Tobin, OSB, will be the presenter for this retreat. If you are planning
to attend and have not yet made your reservations, you may want to do so while guest rooms are still available.

The phone number for reservations is: 800-581-6905.



Please mark your calendars for the Ohio
Oblates Day of Recollection on May 17, 2014.
Our Cincinnati Chapter will be hosts for this
event, which will be held at the Milford Retreat Center.
