The costs associated with a Religious Order or Congregation is expensive. Each are required to see to their own funding and fiscal security. We do not receive funds from the Archdiocese or the Vatican. The parish expenses remain separate from the community’s. As such, we rely on the generosity of our family and friends. Each member of the Community, seeing this as his family, makes regular contributions to the support of the house and apostolate. This only amounts to a fraction of what the total cost will be to support the Cincinnati Oratory.  We can’t do this alone, and we need your help!  Every donation will help us in establishing our little community and spreading the Catholic Faith.  The Society of St. Philip Neri, the incorporated civil name for The Cincinnati Oratory, is a recognized 501(c)3 Organization and all donations are tax-deductible.  Please donate through our PayPal Button below, to set up a recurring donation, or here for a one time donation.

Our goal from this year’s banquet, between October 2018 and September 2019, is to raise $250,000. One seminarian costs the Oratory $30,000 per year, our yearly insurance is also $30,000. This money goes to help pay for those costs, plus our utilities, retreat, and to help finish and furnish our chapel. We have raised, through pledges or donations already received, almost $200,000. Can you help us reach $250,000?

If you can’t make a donation at this time, please remember us in your prayers. This is the best donation anyone can make to us.  Please also consider writing us into your will. May God Bless You!
