This morning we said farewell to Br Aloysius. After trying his vocation with us for six months, Br Aloysius returned home to Amsterdam today. He has been very popular in the parish, and we know you will all join us in wishing him well. #oxfordoratory

Fr Jonathan Robinson, Cong. Orat. RIP

The Fathers were saddened to learn of the death of Fr Jonathan Robinson, the founder and Provost of the Toronto Oratory, on 3 June. Fr Robinson was a philosopher of great standing, and his writings on the Oratory and the spiritual life are a significant contribution to our Institute. The Congregation in Toronto and St Philip’s Seminary will stand as an enduring memorial to this faithful son of St Philip. We pray that he may be granted a merciful judgement and be welcomed into the company of the saints in heaven. Requiescat in pace.
