A note from Father Lenhardt, Rector of the Oratory:
We are very happy that this encouragement also finds its expression in the activities of many faithful and groups at the Oratory. Therefore, I am sending to you this email as an invitation to take part in this vitality of the Oratory:
Regarding the restoration of the foundation of the steeple, we are still working on preliminary studies and evaluating the possible methods to address the problem. This also costs money and we are most grateful for the generous support we experience.
You can help our Oratory by supporting.
