Every Oratory is an autonomous institution. Funding for our apostolic works does not cover the costs of these works nor the costs of housing and feeding the community or maintaining or extending our facilities.The Oratory therefore relies on the contributions made by the priests and brothers themselves and on donations, large and small, that are made by the faithful. The friends and benefactors of the Oratory are those who, from their great generosity, contribute to the work of the Port Elizabeth Oratory. While prayer is the main assistance that we ask, we are extremely grateful for the necessary material and financial donations from the wider community. The Oratorians remember the friends and benefactors of the Oratory at regular Masses and pray for them at their evening prayers.
