Oratory Events & Activities
All are welcome to join in the many activities of the New Brunswick Oratory; formal membership in the Oratory is not required for participation.
For additional opportunities, visit the website of our parish apostolate, St. Peter the Apostle University & Community Parish.
Note: Unless otherwise noted, all events take place at St. Peter the Apostle Church, New Brunswick.
Join us for our monthly Eucharistic Holy Hour on the third Sunday of each month, with the exception of December, when we meet for Advent Lessons and Carols, and June when we meet on the fourth Sunday to avoid a conflict with Fathers’ Day.
Each Holy Hour begins at 4:00 PM in St. Peter the Apostle Church.
This hour of prayer consists of exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, readings, hymns, and silent meditation, and concludes with Benediction.
Note: During the summer months, the Holy Hour will take place in the Catholic Center Chapel, which is air-conditioned.
In addition to our monthly Holy Hour (see above), there are other regular opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration offered through our parish apostolate:
Mondays, from 1-10 PM in the Catholic Center Chapel; and
Fridays, from 8 AM - 5 PM in the Church.
We also offer a Holy Hour on First Fridays at 7:30 PM in the Church, sponsored by St. Peter's Young Adults.
Our traditional Advent celebration of Lessons and Carols is held each year on the Third Sunday of Advent (December 11, 2016) at 4:00 PM at St. Peter the Apostle Church in New Brunswick. Through the music and Scriptures of the season we celebrate the coming among us of the Word made flesh. Afterwards we share in light refreshments downstairs in the Parish Hall.
Each year on May 26 we gather for Eucharist in observance of the Solemnity of our Holy Father St. Philip Neri, Founder of the Oratory. A time for fellowship follows the Mass. The 2017 celebration of St. Philip’s Day will take place on Friday, May 26 at 7:00 PM.
