Oratory Young Adults

OYA Postcards Jan

Oratory Young Adults is our series of meetings for young Catholics who frequent the Oratory. Our series of events for young adults aged 18–30 takes place on a Friday night at the beginning of each month. We meet over some simple food and drink to discuss a question that is important to us as young Catholics, share some catechesis and a piece of scripture before spending a short time in prayer and song together in Church, and many of us continue our time at the Pub across the road.

Five hundred years ago in Rome St Philip gathered around him some young people who were preoccupied with the cares, not only of life and work, but of what it means to be faithful to the Church and become a closer disciple and friend of Christ. Familiar conversation on the Word of God, prayer, song, and friendship with one another was St Philip’s way of helping them grow in love of the Lord, and this is what we do as a group each month; an ancient formula for ordinary young Catholics today.

Whether you are a strong and devout Catholic, consider yourself to be trying hard to be faithful, or usually find that 'Church Groups' are not for you there is a place for you at each of our events for young adults at the Oratory. Come and see!

Meetings usually take place on the first Friday of each month, and you can see what’s happening on our Facebook page @oratoryyoungadults or on the posters in Church.
