It’s that time of year when the Friends of the Oratory sign up or renew their pledges for the coming 12 months. Thank you for your generous support over the last year. With the help of both old and new supporters we strive to continue God’s work with this project.
Who are the Friends of the Oratory?
They are you! Members of our parish who financially support the education of new priests, and help further the studies of existing ones.
Why does the Oratory need the Friends?
Oratorians receive NO financial support for the education of priests. All funds must be raised independently.
How does it work?
Your contribution goes towards the Oratory education fund AND buys you entry into 12 monthly draws for cash prizes. An annual subscription of R240 = ONE entry per month for 12 months. Increased subscriptions mean increased chances of winning!
Since 2021, pledges are paid annually in August. This is easier to manage than our previous system of monthly contributions AND allows the Oratory to plan for the year ahead with the funds available.
How to join?
– Fill in the sign-up form (included above) by the end of August 2022. The first draw of the new series takes place in October 2022.
Contact the parish office (Mon – Fri, 9am – 10am) on 073 247 1316 if you have any queries.
Yours in Christ,
the Fathers of the Oratory
