St. Philip Neri - 500th Anniversary

In 2015, the Oratorian family around the world began its observance of St. Philip's quincentenary - the 500th anniversary of his birth in July 1515. Our local observance of this milestone began with the Solemnity of St. Philip Neri on May 26, 2015. Our celebration has continued with a barbecue after our Eucharistic Holy Hour in July, our annual Advent Lessons and Carols program in December, the visit of the Jubilee Relic of St. Philip in February, and the Forty Hours Devotion with Bishop Byrne in April.

See below for information about our upcoming events.
