About

Better WAY Detroit is an initiative of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri, serving Detroit through the Midtown parish of Our Lady of the Rosary.

The Detroit Oratory is a family of priests and brothers gathered in Jesus Christ, striving to live mutual charity and prayer according to the spirit of St . Philip.

We seek to serve the mission of Christ in the Archdiocese of Detroit in three main ways:

  • Evangelization and proclamation of the Word of God, especially to the young, while forming them in discipleship and leadership in Church and society.
  • The cultivation of the spiritual life through prayer, sacramental service, spiritual direction, beautiful liturgy, and sacred art and music.
  • Service to the poor, sick, and needy, principally in poor neighborhoods.

Better WAY Detroit is currently supporting the City of Detroit's Adopt a Park initiative. As we go forward it is our intent to look at other ways to serve the city with the help of the homeless. In the months ahead we encourage you to return to this website to learn more. 

We thank you for your interest in Better WAY Detroit. God bless you and your family!
