Bishop Mario visits the Oratory
On Saturday, April 27th, Bishop Mario Aviles, Auxilary of the Diocese of Brownsville, Texas, celebrated the 5pm Mass at Holy Family Church. A member of the Pharr Oratory prior to his ordination as bishop, as well as former Procurator General of the Oratorian Confederation, Bishop Aviles came to Toronto to baptize his grandnephew at the Oratory. As it happens, the altar boys had enjoyed an outing to Ripley’s Aquarium earlier in the day and were in full force to serve Bishop Mario’s Mass. Oratorian novices sang the plainchant melodies of the Mass. After Mass, Bishop Aviles recited Baronius’s to St. Philip, exhorting the boys to pray about their vocation in life and for growth in holiness.
