Claustral Oblates

About Us

The claustral oblates will provide those discerners with impediments a form of enclosed religious life.  When severe disabilities are a cause for rejection by other religious orders, or an annulment is either not obtainable or accepted by another order, the claustral oblates are an option.
The disabled will continue to receive their monthly check from the government, and the abbot/abbess will be custodian of the accounts.
The claustral oblates will receive the same formation as the regular nuns/monks.  They will make yearly promises, which can be dispensed at any time.
The habit will be the same as that of the professed.
