Found a somewhat ugly way:

Insert>>Object>>Microsoft Excel Worksheet.
Crop it to show only one cell (sized to accommodate the date).
Click in the cell and Format it as desired.
(go to format>>cell>>number tab>>Date,
pick one with the elements you need,
then switch to Custom and re-order them as desired)
Hit OK.
Verify you're still in the target cell.
Insert>>Function and select TODAY and hit OK.
(or enter =TODAY() in the cell)
Center it if desired (sounds preferable, from your desc).

Now exit the Excel editor, and move the block to wherever you need it on
the page.
