The Oratory

An Online Spiritual Community

The Oratory is the online spiritual community of Halcyon Arts. Oratory members present the various Oratory programs to all who choose to participate in our world spirituality programs.

We explore world spirituality and practice the contemplative arts. We are a virtual chapel, a society of seekers after truth, and a team ministry. 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. They also contribute their time and talent by becoming involved 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?
