Congratulations Bishop Cerrato…

Congratulations to Bishop Edoardo Aldo Cerrato, former Procurator General of the Congregation of the Oratory.  He was appointed Bishop of Ivrea, Italy several weeks ago by His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI.  He was consecrated a Bishop on the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Cardinal Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State.  Bishop Cerrato was particularly helpful with the establishment of the Cincinnati Community-in-Formation, and always demonstrated his excitement about the possibilities of a Cincinnati Oratory.  Our prayers are with you Bishop Cerrato!  Ad Multos Annos!

Congratulations Fr. Avilés!

Congratulations to Fr. Mario Avilés, our delegate in the process of becoming an Oratory of St. Philip Neri, who has been elected the new Procurator General of the Congregation of the Oratory.  Ad multos annos… (Photo is of Fr.
