Chaplaincy and Stella Orientis Oratory

The Sancta Maria Stella Orientis Oratory honors Holy Mary, “Star of the Orient,” serving as the visible heart of the University. Fondly called by a shorter name, “Stella Orientis,” the Oratory is housed on the second floor of UA&P’s Development Communication Building, and was blessed on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 15 August 1992.

The Oratory’s design considers focus and devotion to Christ, and every detail performs a catechetical function for the faithful.

The Stella Orientis Oratory is administered by the University Chaplaincy, which is entrusted to the Prelature of Opus Dei. Various activities are held at the Oratory.
