BECOMING A CATHOLICOXFORD UNIVERSITY CATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY
Click here for a message from the Chaplains - September 17
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.
Masses at the Chaplaincy:
Sundays 11am (followed by tea/coffee) and 5.45pm.
Student Mass and (free!) breakfast on Wednesdays at 8am.
“Jesus Christ loves you; He gave His life to save you; and now He is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you.”
– Pope Francis
If you haven’t yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation, or if you want to become a Catholic, our RCIA and Sacramental programme is for you. Please contact a Chaplain to express interest.
We will have an information session in Michaelmas Term. From 6th week of term, we will hold group formation sessions on Mondays from 7pm to 8pm (tbc for MT21). These, together with a series of one-to-one meetings with a Chaplain, will help you to grow both in the understanding of the Faith and to grow in relationship with Christ and his Church.
Your journey towards baptism/reception into the Church and/or confirmation will be marked by special moments of welcome and introduction at Sunday Masses during the Hilary term and the beginning of Trinity.
The programme concludes with the celebration of baptisms, receptions into the Catholic Church and confirmations, usually on the Sunday of 3rd week in Trinity Term, at the 11am Mass which will be celebrated by Bishop William Kenney, our local Bishop.
