Mission

Who are the Oratorians?

Since 1934, Oratorian priests and brothers of Rock Hill, South Carolina, have served the church in a variety of ways. Founded by St. Phillip Neri, “The Saint of Joy”, we have followed recent the Church teachings to address social justice issues. Through the years, the Oratory has actively supported local civil rights efforts and sponsored and welcomed refugees from Southeast Asia. Our campus ministry has grown for over 50 years. We currently minister to a large Hispanic community as well as house and minister the needs of aging priests and brothers.
