Oratory of Saint Philip Neri
The Oratory of Saint Philip Neri is a congregation of Roman Catholic priests and lay-brothers who live together in community bound together by no formal vows but only with the bond of charity. They are commonly referred to as Oratorians. The order was founded by St. Philip Neri (1515-1595).
English houses also exist in London and Oxford.
The post-nominal initials commonly used to identify members of the order are "C.O.". The Abbreviation "Cong. Orat" is also used.
