Friends of the Oratory

We invite you to join the “Friends of the Oratory” to grow closer to the Lord following the charism of our founder, St. Philip Neri. Our purpose is to build relationships with one another based on our common bond of charity and friendship with the Lord.

The Friends of the Oratory began under the leadership of Fr. Joseph Wahl, C.O. The main reason was to bring awareness of the presence of the Congregation of the Oratory in York County. Today the members of the Friends of the Oratory are spread out in five parishes administered by the Rock Hill Oratory, meaning all the over 5.000 families.

We have a job for you!
