Masses & Liturgies


Coming together as a community to worship is a central part of living out our faith at Oratory. At Oratory Prep, there are many opportunities for corporate worship:

Daily Mass
Oratory Prep offers Mass at 7:40 each morning in the chapel from Tuesday through Friday. Anyone in the Oratory community is welcome to attend. On Mondays, the St. Philip Neri Club joyfully meets and prays together at that time.
 
Prayer Services
Several times a year, the Oratory Prep community worships together in a prayer service or a paraliturgy. A prayer service is different from Mass in that the celebration of the Eucharist is omitted and, therefore, allows for more flexibility in its planning process by the students. Prayer services are peer-led by our Campus Ministry Team. Oratory Prep has an Ecumenical Prayer Service to celebrate Thanksgiving, where we encourage our brothers and sisters from other faith denominations to join us. We continue to have Penance Services during the Advent and Lenten Seasons, where students are given the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Oratory, also, has weekly prayer services and Bible studies for the underclassmen led by the Campus Ministry Team and a member of the OP Clergy. Other prayer experiences are incorporated into the Religion Curriculum.
