Canonical Visitation


The Very Reverend Father Felix Selden of the Vienna Oratory, Apostolic Delegate of the Holy See to the Confederation of the Oratory, conducted a canonical Visitation of our house on 1st and 2nd May 2012.

Every Congregation is usually visited once in the six year term of the Apostolic Visitor. Now that he has been to Oxford, Fr Visitor has been to all but four of the eighty-two houses of the Oratory in the world, since his election in 2006.

Father Felix has long been a friend of our community, and we were delighted to welcome him, together with Fr George Bowen of the London Oratory, who acted as Secretary to the Visitation.
