SERVICEOXFORD UNIVERSITY CATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY
Click here for a message from the Chaplains - October 11
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
Pope Francis reminds us that our world needs young people of generosity to engage with the difficult realities of our times.
Like in academic life, or in sport, or music etc., so in our life of love of neighbour – we need to exercise ourselves, to discover how to come alive in the service of others, and how to communicate Christ’s own love for the poor and the marginalised.
So here are a few concrete ways you might engage in the service of others during your time in Oxford:
A secular, student-run society which seeks to promote a culture of life at the university and in the wider community, advocating the protection of human life from conception to natural death.
Based on Little Clarendon Street, the Hub helps students find volunteering placements around the city, with refugee children, the disabled, the elderly and others in need.
Please contact one of the Chaplains if you have your own ideas as to how we can respond to the Gospel call to serve our neighbour and safeguard our ‘common home’.
