Oblate Profile

Robert H. Mace, Jr., Th.M.
Lives in Tampa, Florida
Tell us something about yourself

A native Pennsylvanian, I attended St. Francis University in Loretto, PA, followed by graduate school at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My graduate degrees are an M.A. In French literature and a Th.M. in Theology. My mother's family is Irish Roman Catholic; my late father's family was Irish Anglo-Catholic. A denominational hybrid, raised by Sisters of Mercy, I ultimately joined the Episcopal Church for its progressive stance toward women, the lost and the forgotten.

Why are you an oblate?

First, I am an Oblate in order to offer back to God, from my profound emptiness and brokenness, the gracious and generous gift of my life, with the prayer that God will transform the chaos of my longing for God into a new and useful and pleasing creation. Second, but no less significantly, I am an Oblate of Mount Saint Benedict in order to stand in spiritual solidarity with the Benedictine Sisters who bring so much good and giftedness into our desperate, needy world.
