November 20th, 2009 at Hanga Abbey church two novice oblates made their final oblation to become spiritually associated with the monks of Hanga Abbey. So far there is a total of 85 oblates of the abbey and the number is growing. Fr. Gregory Mwageni, OSB, is the director of the oblates of the abbey. We wish all the oblates stability and growth as they try to live St. Benedict's Rule in their lay environments.
