Oratory Services

Oratory services are based on Evening Prayer, what we might call meditation services, but the readings, meditations, and prayers may be drawn from the world's spiritual traditions.  Contemplative music and Taizé chants are an integral part of the service.  The service is expected to change as leadership expands and inspiration unfolds. 

Join us earlier, at 7:00 pm, if you wish to share informal social time before the service.  The service starts at 7:30 pm and lasts about 20-30 minutes.

On October 25, our Oratory Service takes place virtually in  Saint Joseph in the Woods in Stella, Italy.

Virtually, our services and silences take place in fascinating and beautiful oratories, chapels, and meditation spaces around the world.

Oratory Silences

Our Silence sessions are times of contemplative practice. The silence will be marked with bells at the beginning and the end. There may be a short prayer or meditative reading at the start and end of the sessions as well. Silences start at 7:30 pm and last a half-hour at most.
