Some 24 Oblates of Pluscarden came for the special Oblate Weekend 17-20 August 2018. Talks on the Oblate life were given by Rt. Rev. Richard Moth, Bishop of Arundel and Brighton, formerly Catholic Bishop of the Armed Forces.
Within the Bishop's Conference of England and Wales, Bishop Richard also has responsibility for Prisons and for Mental Health. He has long been an Oblate of Pluscarden, having been a regular visitor since his seminary days. The talks were much appreciated by all, as was the opportunity to stay once again within the atmosphere of Pluscarden, attending its public worship, and meeting like-minded oblates.
