Oblates Day 2011

Published by in News on October 27th, 2011

Oblates Day – 8th October – enjoying each others company.

16 Oblates gathered for the Oblates’ Day on 8th October, arriving for coffee at 10 am followed by a talk on Pilgrimage by Sister Mary Bernadette, (available here shortly). The Mass was at 12 noon and was followed by an excellent sit-down lunch with much talking and laughter. For most it was their first visit to Costock so after None there was a guided tour of the new Convent, everyone finishing up in St Benedict’s House for tea. This was served with a variety of cakes, buns and biscuits, home baked by Oblates and Sisters. All very delicious. Some people had to depart after tea but a goodly few stayed on for Vespers. Several Oblates from far afield stayed a couple of nights in St Benedict’s, some travelled just for the day from as far away as Scarborough and Wakefield. The day was enjoyed equally by Oblates and Sisters.
