Mass is celebrated by local Priests from St. Saviour’s Parish.
In the frenetic heart of the city, only a stone’s throw from the Rotunda Hospital, is a quiet haven of peace and tranquillity. The St Martin Apostolate Oratory is a place to sit and reflect, where you can pray or just gather your thoughts.
A Little Oratory can build a big habit of Prayer
We in the Saint Martin Apostolate are very proud of our Oratory which was first opened in 1977. Over the past few weeks it has undergone a refurbishment, which we are sure will make the surroundings even more conducive for private and solitary prayer in the presence of the Lord.
Time spent in such a manner is certain to bring its own invisible harmony to the stresses of modern living. It also connects us to our Sunday worship, reminding us of the importance of living out our faith throughout the week.
The Oratory is a place where we can seek comfort and solace, reflect in silence and very importantly, give thanks. The experience of peace is palpable and impresses upon us that while our lives may be frenetic, our time here on earth is only a brief journey.
Soon we will be adding the Stations of the Cross which will also help our visitors to reflect on the Passion, the necessary prerequisite to the Resurrection, the great hope of all us Christians.
We would like to welcome you all to experience for yourselves the tranquillity of this sacred space.
We have a number of Relics on display in our Oratory including:
- St Martin de Porres
