Little Oratory


The Brothers of the Little Oratory meet on Sundays at 3.15 p.m. in the Shrine of Blessed John Henry Newman. The meeting begins with a reading from the life of St Philip, followed by prayers and a talk on a spiritual topic. We then go into the Oratory House for a cup of tea and a chat. The Brothers are open to all Catholic men over the age of 18. We also organise day-trips and evenings of recollection.

Junior Oratory

20150108-1645-Copyright-J-Lopuszynski-2015-Junior-Oratory-Flight-into-Egyp-TitledtThe Junior Oratory is for children between 4 and 11 years of age. We will meet at the Oratory House every other Saturday from 2.30 – 4.

It will start some very special prayers, singing one or two hymns, listening to a story from the life of St Philip’s life. We will then spend a little time getting to know more about our holy Faith. There will be activities with books and colouring pencil. Then we’ll have some pop and biscuits and play a game before our Mummies and Daddies pick us up to take us home. The priests and brothers and some grown ups will be there to help us to learn and pray and know our Faith together, and enjoy ourselves at the same time.
