Securing the Future

As we undertake to consolidate our seminary plant, we also aim to provide a firm financial foundation for every aspect of our Oratorian mission. Our annual appeal has provided critical operating support, but an expanded endowment will not only provide security to the ‘status quo’, but furnish resources for further creative development of the Oratorian mission to which we are committed. An enhanced endowment will generate consistent investment income to sustain the works of the Oratory, most importantly, for the:

  • education of Oratorian novices and continuing intellectual development of our priests
  • upkeep of buildings and utilities
  • salaries and benefits of Seminary and Oratory employees
  • ongoing enrichment of the Oratory’s liturgical music program, already widely regarded as one of the finest in Toronto
