Chapters

In some cities, there are enough oblates to form a group called a chapter. The chapter is a small local community of believers associated with Saint Meinrad and living by the Rule of St. Benedict. They support one another and join together in prayer and spiritual discovery. Currently, Saint Meinrad Archabbey has 19 oblate chapters throughout the country.

This is the Mission Statement for chapters of Benedictine Oblates of Saint Meinrad:

We, Benedictine Oblates of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, are Christian men and women, lay and ordained, living in the world, united by the holy Rule of St. Benedict. We come together in Chapters to support one another and strengthen our spiritual life through liturgical celebration, instruction, and fellowship in Christ, so "that in all things God may be glorified" (RB 57:9).

Oblate chapters are located in the cities below, and Chapter Coordinators are listed for each chapter. Names in red can by emailed by clicking on the link.
