New Oxford Oratory Site Reveals Architectural Building Plans

The Oxford Oratory has up a reasonably new website/blog, Oxford Oratory: Reaffirmation and Renewal, which serves as a fundraising portal for some of their renewal and building projects, and also helps to bring forward some of their plans -- which plans include a new baptistery and chapel which will be dedicated to Blessed Cardinal Newman.

The site also details some of the general restoration work they have pursued so far -- work we have shown here in the past -- and includes other projects such as providing new rooms for the growing number of vocations the Oratory is receiving, and constructing a new library to hold the Oratory's ever growing collection.
