The Pittsburgh Oratory is a community of Roman Catholic priests and seminarians that provides a center of prayer and spiritual enrichment. The oratory also hosts and comprises a number of different groups and programs for the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
It is named in honor of Saint Philip Romolo Neri (1515-1595), an Italian priest who founded the Roman Congregation Of The Oratory. The oratory is a society of apostolic life of Catholic priests and lay-brothers who live together in a community bound together by no formal vows but only with the bond of charity.
Constructed in the 19th century, the Pittsburgh Oratory is a beautiful Tudor Revival style building. Facilities include the Ryan Catholic Newman Center, a ministry which serves the students, faculty, and
staff of the University Of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and Chatham University.
