The Oratory Church of Saint Boniface, a Roman Catholic parish in downtown Brooklyn, is a community with a rich history and a deep commitment to joyfully welcoming the challenge of growing as people of God. Though most of us live in the neighborhoods of Brooklyn, many also come from the broader metropolitan area, including Manhattan, Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey. Our priests belong to the Community of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri and have the responsibility of administering St. Boniface Church by contract with the Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn.
The Oratory Church of Saint Boniface is a community with a rich history and a deep commitment to growing as people of God.
Our community is dedicated to celebrating the Gospel with reverence, to affection and openness towards all, to ministering to the spiritual and material needs within and beyond our community, and to engaging the moral questions of our day under the guidance of God's wisdom.
Music is an integral part of our liturgical life here at Saint Boniface, as is reflective prayer and study. In addition, we are grateful and proud to have a dynamic and dedicated parish that gives of its time and talents to continually create a loving and joyous community.

And, if you live nearby or are just in the area, please stop by the beautiful church we have inherited, and that our community has lovingly restored.

Through Jesus, we become a spiritual home, peacemakers, a royal priesthood, living stones.
