The Fathers and Brothers were pleased to be able to join with parishioners, family, friends and supporters for a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form on the evening of May 26th, 2016. Father Wise was the celebrant; Father Armstrong the deacon; and Brother Tyson the sub-deacon. The Mass celebrated the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, with a commemoration of Saint Philip Neri, our founder and father. At the conclusion of the Jubilee Year marking the 500th anniversary of Saint Philip’s birth, it was fitting that his feast coincided with Corpus Christi, since he died on that feast. Thank you to those who were able to join us last night, and also to those who sent messages to mark the feast. The Oratory community now begins its second year of the “in formation” stage.
We will advise when photos from last night’s Mass are uploaded.
Over this coming weekend we will farewell Brothers Conor and Matthew, who return to Toronto on Monday. As they are still in their novitiate year, they may only be absent from Toronto for a short time. We look forward to seeing them here in Brisbane again at Christmas time.
