Our Way of Life

Here we would like to show you some videos of the Brisbane Oratory. A rare glimpse inside our humble home and a look at the life of our brothers while away for their formation.

The Brisbane Oratory in Formation is pleased to present our first video, describing the beginning and establishment, in the initial stage of development, of the first Oratory of St Philip Neri in Australia and Oceania. We are grateful to the editor and staff of The Catholic Leader, our media partner, for facilitating this ground-breaking video. May this media allow a wider understanding of this Oratory project, which we have placed under the heavenly protection of Our Lady, St Philip Neri, Bl John Henry Newman and Bl Pier Giorgio Frassati. Let us pray for each other.

The seminarians of the Brisbane Oratory-in-Formation made this short documentary to share with their benefactors and supporters their formation at the Toronto Oratory, where they experience life in an established Oratory, are formed in the ways of St Philip, and also undergo their education in philosophy.

Video Greetings

For the establishment of the Brisbane Oratory in Formation we received some video greetings from our Oratorian brethren in England, a message of support from Cardinal Pell, and well wishes from our own Archbishop Mark Coleridge. These videos were for the occasion of one of our fundraising evenings, the Vallicella Dinner.
