CHAPLAINCY LIFE

OXFORD UNIVERSITY CATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY
Click here for a message from the Chaplains - October 11
Welcome, new students! We are looking forward to meeting you soon!

Follow our news via our website, and on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Register for our weekly newsletter, which will resume in Michaelmas.

As Chaplains, we are always here for you. Sometimes, though, it may help to have a fellow student as a 'godparent' to help you settle in to university, and introduce you to the many sights of Catholic Oxford! Complete this brief form and we will try to give you godparents with at least one from the same college or course.

Current students, you can sign up to be a 'Godparent' here.

Michaelmas Term Masses at the Chaplaincy:
Sundays 11am (followed by refreshments), 5.45pm and 9pm (followed by hot chocolate)
Student Mass and (free!) breakfast on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays at 8am
1st-8th week: Mon-Tue-Thu-Fri-Sat 12.15pm (public Mass)
College Masses: see schedule

 

The Chaplains

Please see our Facebook Page for the latest updates.

The Oxford University Catholic Chaplaincy building is open for all students to use 24/7. Whether you want to stop by to use the Chapel, fancy a cup of tea with friends, or would like a relaxed and social place to study, we are open for you.

Our building is kept secure with door codes for both the ground and first floor. These are released to students at the discretion of the Chaplains at the start of each term, and allow full access to the non-residential parts of the building.

The ground floor entrance space is known as the Narthex. The sofas there are the perfect spot to relax or eat your lunch. The Chapel is also on the ground floor, and is always open.

On the first floor, you will find the Chaplaincy library. This space is used frequently by students during term who seek a comfortable space to get their readings done and essays written. The library is stocked with a wide range of books, both fiction and non-fiction; just outside, a kettle, fridge space, and microwave are available for you to make tea and have a break.

The Strange Room is the main social space of the Catholic Chaplaincy and has plenty of room for you to meet with friends and relax in between work and tutorials.
