The Oratory

An Online Spiritual Community

The Oratory is a new monastic community and a team ministry. Oratory members present Halcyon's programs exploring world spirituality and the contemplative arts. We are a lay community leading lives in the world and offering a diversity of spiritual programs to those interested. Oratory members have decided to more intentionally pursue their spiritual life in community as well as contribute their time and talent in some form of leadership in Oratory programs. 

Help support our offerings by becoming a Friend of the Oratory.  Friends help to sustain our world spirituality programs and may join any of the online spirituality programs for free.

There are many dimensions to the Oratory. How would you like to participate? Click on a photo below for more information on one of our programs.
