Oblate Prayer Board

The prayer board is an opportunity for anyone to request prayers for urgent needs, as well as the occasion to pray for others, “to lay our petitions before the Lord God of all things with the utmost humility and sincere devotion” (Rule of St. Benedict 20). When prayers are requested, they will be included in the intentions of the whole Mt Angel Abbey Community.

We pray for our Benedictine family and for the repose of the soul of Father Bede and all those who have gone home to their eternal reward. HAPPY FEAST DAY ST. BENEDICT.

After a long pause I'm starting to work again but I'm not yet fully recovered from my non-small personal problems and losses, so I kindly ask from you to pray for me so I can persevere on the job that is so needed for my family.


Thank you.

Please keep one of my co-workers in your prayers; he has diabetes and has been quite ill lately. He's also missing a lot of work. I'm sure he'd thank you for your prayers, too. Thanks, and Peace!
