The work of St Philip in London – The Oratory Friends
The Oratory Friends aim to bring to London the work of St Philip Neri, the sixteenth-century founder of the Roman Oratory. When St Philip arrived in Rome in 1534 he soon saw that one way to draw others to follow Christ more closely was by sending them out to assist the needy in Rome in the local hospitals and elsewhere. He himself often went out on missions of mercy to help those whom, by Divine guidance, he knew needed aid. By these means and by his preaching, St Philip became known as the Second Apostle of Rome
Helping us to help others
By volunteering through the Brompton Oratory you commit to a dual role: giving your time to those in genuine need and doing so as an ‘ambassador’ for your Faith and for the Oratory. This will be a chance to witness to the truth of our Faith by concrete deeds of love.
We work with a number of different charities that care for the homeless, the elderly and ex-offenders. However, there are plenty more areas and opportunities.
What do I need to do?
All you need to do is register with us. After which you will be contacted by one of our team to arrange a meeting, where you will be able to explore the areas you wish to help in, your availability and how long you wish to volunteer for.
