Not sure where this should go, if Heavenly Hosts need to move it to another area, thank you.

I am wondering how many on the ship are members of a religious community? Are any of you a member, or an associate of some holy order? What have you found are the advantage of joining.

I have a friend who is an Oblate of the Benedictine Order. She has found it to be spiritually nourishing. I have accompanied her on retreat at a Benedictine abbey a few times. I found that to be spiritually nourishing.

I'm afraid to don't know a lot of details, but I can say that she wouldn't have joined if she didn't see the value.
