St. Philip Neri Oratory UPDATE

_275052273Your prayers, fasting, and sacrifices are the most important thing the fledgling San Francisco Oratory of St. Philip Neri needs from you today. There are still some non-financial pieces of the puzzle that only God can fit together.  Please pray especially for the priests, brothers, bishops and archbishops involved.

A special thank you to everyone who has pledged to pray and support the oratory thus far; we are halfway into the pledge drive and your generosity has helped us attain 54% of our monetary goal!

I sent out confirmation e-mails to everyone who made a pledge as of Sunday night. I am at a priests’ workshop through Friday with limited internet and so I will send acknowledgements for all who pledged since Sunday a when I get back to the College on Friday.

Again, thank you for your continued support! Please pray also for us fifteen priests at a Corpus Christi Movement workshop until Friday. The priests (from six countries) give retreats or direction to the Missionaries of Charity, and we are being trained to give retreats and spiritual direction using the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. It’s been wonderful so far!
