Vocations to the Oratory

If you are discerning a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, you may be wondering if the Congregation of the Oratory is the place for you.

The Oratory accepts candidates for brotherhood and priesthood, including men who are already ordained. Due to the autonomy of each Oratorian house and the familial nature of our form of common life, it is important for the community and the potential candidate to get to know each other. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of an Oratorian vocation, we invite you to:

- Come to an Oratory activity or event (see the calendar for more information) and
- Contact us for more information about Oratorian life or to make an appointment with the Provost.

The Secular Oratory also accepts candidates by invitation of the Congregation.
