Benedictine Oblate Medals Now Available for Purchase
Our new Oblate of St. Benedict Medal was designed by Sister Linda Campbell, OSB and Lorien West. Since we could not locate a medal already designed that an Oblate could wear on either a chain or waxed cord, we designed one. We also found it important that the person wearing the medal could easily be identified as a Benedictine Oblate. As far as we could research no such medal existed. We did however find a pin, but we truly wanted one that could be used with a chain or chord.
This medal is 1.5 inches in diameter and 3mm [0.118”] thick; is made of a zinc base and brass coated and polished; the colors are soft enamel color filled. Each medal is packaged individually. The waxed cord can be purchased at Hobby Lobby stores.
The back of the medal is blank and can be engraved with the name of the Oblate and date of Oblation. Our Monastery does not have the ability to do engraving, but the purchaser may arrange their own engraving after medals are received.

We hope that all Oblates enjoy this medal as much as our Oblates do. Thank you for your interest. Blessings always,
Sister Linda Campbell, OSB & The OLGM Community
