One of the most edifying experiences of the entire year is the Institute’s Boys Camp held in Wausau Wisconsin. Boys Camp strengthens faith and physique as the canons and abbés challenge you to grow both physically and spiritually.

On June 2nd, 2019 at the 11am Mass, the faithful of the Oratory had the joy of participating at Mass when five of our young members recieved their First Holy Communion.

 

St. Francis de Sales Oratory is pleased to announce the purchase of a major pipe organ by master builder Karl Wilhelm. The new instrument more than doubles the size of the existing organ, which was never adequate to fill the immense “Cathedral of South St. Louis.” At last St. Francis de Sales will house an organ worthy of its solemn liturgy and soaring Gothic Revival structure.

The Prior General of the Institute makes his annual visit to the Oratory.
