Reforming people into the image of Christ
In the Anglican Tradition
What is an Oratory?
The word Oratory identifies a place of prayer outside of a local parish church. During the middle ages, Oratory's were established within communities to revitalize Christian piety and service. Christian homes and public spaces were set apart to keep the daily office, foster personal devotion, and for catechesis (Christian education). Their origin probably goes back to the chapels built over the tombs of the martyrs in the earliest times where Christians would stop and pray.
The Anglican Oratory gathers in different locations throughout the Lake Ray Hubbard area for one important purpose: to reform people into the image of Christ in the Anglican way. The Oratory consists of clergy and lay persons seeking to establish a common rule of life within a small community. We call people to communal prayer and study for growth in Christian piety, service, and evangelism.
