The March meeting will be held on Sunday, March 26, at 2:00 p.m. in the St. Joseph Room of the St.
Gertrude Parish Center. We will, among other things, be discussing plans for the upcoming Ohio Day of
Recollection on May 20.
Our program for this meeting will be a continuation of Fr. Harry Hagen’s Video Conference #3, Praying
the Psalms. We will pick up from where we left off at the January 16 meeting.
PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS and plan to attend the May 20 Ohio Day of Recollection at the
Milford Spiritual Center.
REMINDER: On Tuesday, March 21, we celebrate one of the two feast days honoring St. Benedict—the
Passing of Blessed Father Benedict. (The second—Our Blessed Father Benedict—is held on July 11.)
Oblates have an opportunity to earn a Plenary Indulgence on these days by fulfilling the following
1) Confession, 2) Receiving Holy Communion, and 3) Praying for the intentions of the Holy Father. In
addition, oblates should renew, at least privately, their promise to faithfully observe the promise of their
way of life.
