Br Oliver's Ordination to the Diaconate

The Oxford Oratory Community was all together again last Saturday for the ordination to the diaconate of Br Oliver by Bishop Robert Byrne. A full report of the ceremony can be found on the Oxford Oratory website. Bishop Robert's sermon gave a beautiful account of the ministry of deacon in St Philip's spirit. Here are some photographs of the ceremony including one of our whole community together, something which happens rather rarely these days!IMG_1678-2-400x267 IMG_1671-2-400x267IMG_1783-2-400x279

Congratulations to the Fathers and Brothers of the new Oratory in Cincinnati. It was made public today that Pope Francis decreed the canonical independence of the community on 19 March, the Feast of St Joseph. The community began common life together in 2008. Please keep them in your prayers.10401961_1593800990892934_1201873124906578544_n37BCAEC1-38BD-4213-AA60-1F8391E883D9
