Oblates of St. Benedict are Christian men and women, lay and ordained, who have associated themselves with a Benedictine community (in this case, Saint Leo Abbey in St. Leo, Florida) in order to enrich their Christian way of life. Oblates shape their lives by living the wisdom of Christ as interpreted by St. Benedict. They seek God by striving to become holy in their chosen way of life.
Oblates come together to support one another and strengthen their spiritual life through liturgical celebration, instruction and fellowship in Christ, so "that in all things God may be glorified" (Rule of St. Benedict 57:9). Anyone interested in Benedictine spiritually is welcome to participate in one of our monthly meetings. All are welcome, Oblates, Oblate novices and any inquirers.
The Legion of Mary Ministry is an association of Catholic men and women who attend a weekly meeting and consecrate their lives to Our Blessed Mother Mary.
The Legion of Mary, founded in Dublin, Ireland, by Frank Duff, in the year 1921, is the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church, and has been active in the United States since 1931.
Members attend a weekly meeting with praying the rosary and reciting the Tessera from a handbook. One morning a week, the active Legion Members, as a group, visit nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or an independent facility to say the rosary and visit with the residents.
Membership to the Legion is open to ordinary Catholics, living an every-day life who have the desire to follow in the footsteps of our Blessed Mother Mary, as she brings us closer and closer to her Son.
Interested in getting involved with the Legion of Mary Ministry! We meet every Monday morning at 10:00 AM, in the Ministry Building, Room 7, for about ninety minutes of prayer and discussions. On Thursday mornings we do our visitations.
This is a life changing experience that you don’t want to miss.
There are also Auxiliary members who cannot attend the meetings or visitations, who pray the rosary and the Tessera each and every day. This is another step to become a Legion member.
The Friends of St. Jude Ministry which was formed in March 1997 to promote devotion to St. Jude, consists of people that are dedicated to praying together to St. Jude on behalf of those that are sick or in turmoil. We pray for and support all prayer requests given to us.
A Novena is held the second Friday of each month after the 8:30 A.M. Mass in Room 3 of the Ministry Building.
Interested in joining the Friends of St. Jude? We meet the second Friday of each month in Room 3 for about forty-five minutes after the 8:30 A.M. Mass. If you often rely on St. Jude’s intercession this ministry is for you.
