Q & A 01

Les Oblats de Notre-Dame du Haut Tombeau sont chrétiens ; nous sommes une organisation catholique. Cependant, la Règle de saint Benoît est un document profondément chrétien dont l'attrait est reconnu par de nombreux chrétiens. Par conséquent, les chrétiens baptisés d’autres confessions ont une certaine résonance avec la manière de devenir Oblats de l’OLHG. Des hommes et des femmes, de tous horizons, sont membres de nos Oblats. Du point de vue bénédictin, être membre d'un autre groupe n'empêche pas de devenir Oblat tant que l'autre groupe est ouvert à suivre l'esprit de la Règle de saint Benoît.

The Oblates of Our Lady of High Grave are Christian; we are a Catholic Organization. However, the Rule of St. Benedict is a profoundly Christian document whose appeal is recognized by many Christians. Hence, baptized Christians of other denominations have some resonance with the way to become Oblates of the OLHG. Both men and women, and many walks of life, are members of our Oblates. From the Benedictine point of view, being a member of another group does not hinder becoming an Oblate as long as the other group is open to following the spirit of the Rule of St Benedict.

11) The Secretary-General

12) Franciscan: You can be a Franciscan at heart, with a calling towards Franciscan Spirituality without joining the Order.

13) Firefighter Creed: I will always be at my station, alert and attending to my duties. I shall, so far as I am able, bring to my senior solutions, not problems. I shall live joyously, but always with due regard for the rights and privileges of others.

14) Fireman's last call: The last call, also known as a bell service, may feature bagpipes and a dispatch call. A firefighter responds to alarms on duty and this ceremony is a reminder of their sacrifice.
