The Saint Philip Society


Here is an exciting opportunity to be an integral part of the Cincinnati Oratory.  Through the livings and teaching of the Faith and the worthy Celebration of the Sacraments, we have the opportunity to transform the culture of Over-the Rhine and Cincinnati.  Everyone has the opportunity to assist us financially by joining The Saint Philip Society.

The foundation of a religious community is a very expensive enterprise.  And without your support, The Oratory will not be able to do its work.  The Saint Philip Society assists in helping to offset the costs of the rising general annual expenses of the community. We rely upon the investment that our friends and supporters put into us to support and join in our work.

The Challenge for all of us is to generate support for this mission to extend our family to all of Cincinnati.  In raising moral, spiritual, and financial support, we can impact the culture through our faith.  Through our impact on the Local Church, we can impact the Church throughout the world!

We have the opportunity to spread this mission by your spiritual, moral, and financial support. Through your unrestricted gift, you can help us Sanctify Cincinnati.  Is God calling you to help?

Membership Levels
(based on annual giving)

$10,000 and above – Founders Circle
$6,000-$9,999 – Congregation Circle
$3,000-$5,999 – St. Philip Circle
$1,000-$2,999 – Bl. Newman Circle

If 200 people gave at least $250 a year (about $20 a month), that would provide the Community with $50,000 a year to operate.  But remember, no gift is too small, and no gift is too big.  Together we can do great things…

“I have no doubt that the Oratory will produce many blessings in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.” – Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr
