Hard on the heels of the Cardiff Oratory announcement is news that there is also to be an Oratory at Bournmouth. Bishop Egan will be making the very fine church of the Sacred Heart in the centre of Bournmouth available for yet another Oratory project.
This brings to four the number of new Oratories that have that have been announced in the last few years. These Oratories in formation are at Manchester, York, Cardiff and Bournmouth. There are also fully formed Oratories in Birmingham, London and Oxford.
It seems that Oratories are in the vanguard when it comes to the re-evangelisation of England and Wales.
