It has been announced that the Oratory in Formation in Manchester, located at the Church of St Chad in Cheetham Hill Road, is now a fully erected independent Oratory. The community consists of Fr Raymond Matus, Fr Christopher Hilton, Fr Richard Bailey, Br Gerard Connett and Br Fabian Trevithick.
The church which dates from 1847 was designed by Matthew Ellison Hadfield and is a Grade II* Listed Building. The roof is supported by hammer beams which seem unnecessary for the modest width of the nave.
Mass is offered in the Extraordinary Form every Sunday at 4.45pm. We wish the Manchester Oratory every success.
