The Oratory Development Appeal is our fundraising campaign to raise £2.8million pounds to refurbish the Oratory House and for the transformation of our halls.
Preliminary Phase 1: 30 weeks, January – July 2019
Refurbish the Oratory House – which is currently uninhabitable – to make it safe and habitable: replace all contaminated water pipes throughout the four floors, replace 70-year old electrical wiring, install new boilers and heating system, reconfigure former ‘ablutions’ block, add en suite facilities to some bedrooms, expand tiny kitchen.
Major Phase II, 2020
Transform extensive Halls and subterranean areas to realise the Bishop’s Vision as a Catholic Conference Centre for the New Evangelization, Formation and Catechetics (evenings and weekends) and to rent out to local businesses (mid week day time) with sate-of-the-art conference rooms, restaurant, Catholic shop, Chaplaincy facilities etc.
