Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry is an integral and vibrant part of life at Oratory. Oratory integrates its faith-based values into each school day. Whether it is starting each morning and class with prayer, celebrating Mass together as a community, or serving our fellow brothers and sisters both locally and afar, students and faculty alike are encouraged to live out their faith every day.
 
Campus Ministry at Oratory is vital to our school culture; Liturgical Life, Caritas (Christian Service) and Retreats are all main components of OP’s Campus Ministry:
 
    Liturgical Life:  Monthly Mass, Adoration, Paraliturgies, and Seasonal Bible Studies.
    Caritas:             Monthly service trips, school-based & community-based projects rooted
                              in the Corporal/Spiritual Works of Mercy &  Social Justice.
    Retreats:           Annual Class Retreats, Campus Ministry Team Retreat, workshops &
                              training sessions for various programs.
 
Our students are involved in numerous service activities within our school, our community and even abroad. Every year, each grade attends a retreat that is specially themed for that class (please click on the “Retreats” section to learn more).
 
Many Campus Ministry activities are peer-led. Our Campus Ministry Team, which consists of Junior and Senior leaders, serves at Masses, plans and facilitates class retreats and Seasonal Bible Studies, and is involved in all aspects of our community’s spiritual life. The Saint Philip Neri Club, based on our patron saint, keeps his spirit alive through joy and service in our community (please click on the “St Philip Neri Club” section to learn more).
