The Worcester Oratory

A Catholic faith community in the heart of Warndon Villages.


God's ministers are not to be judged.

[1] Let a man so account of us as of the ministers of Christ, and the dispensers of the mysteries of God. [2] Here now it is required among the dispensers, that a man be found faithful. [3] But to me it is a very small thing to be judged by you, or by man's day; but neither do I judge my own self. [4] For I am not conscious to myself of any thing, yet am I not hereby justified; but he that judgeth me, is the Lord. [5] Therefore judge not before the time; until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts; and then shall every man have praise from God.

WELCOME... The Oratory of Our Lady & Saint Francis of Assisi, Damaskfield, Worcester, England.

We are a contemplative, Roman Catholic, faith community, of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. We celebrate a valid Eucharist and have valid apostolic succession.

We hold true to the faith of the Church instituted by Jesus Christ Our Divine Saviour, who said: "I am the way, and the truth and the life.  No man cometh to the Father, but by me." John 14:6.  Our Lord Jesus Christ is not only the Son of God, He IS God.

The White Dragon of the English

The White Dragon of the English


"The clasp that holds the two sides of the cope together bears a jewel made by jeweller, Rhiannon of Tregaron. The design shows the white dragon of England and the red dragon of Wales greeting each other in peace across the cross of Canterbury."
The Archbishop of Canterbury web site


Two images toward the bottom of this section also bear mentioning. A pair of small roundels containing a red dragon, representing the Welsh, and a white dragon, representing the Saxons… For the Yorkists the red dragon represented Edward IV, and the white dragon the Lancastrians. The identification of Lancastrians and Saxons is made further along in the manuscript, where Henry IV, Henry V, and Henry VI are all bordered in Saxon yellow alone.
This refers to a 15th century heraldic manuscript.
