OXFORD UNIVERSITY CATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY
Click here for a message from the Chaplains - June 22
Hello!

As we begin the summer vac, we want to ensure that we can continue to stay in touch. If you are leaving Oxford University, please don't forget to send us your non-university email address. We even have a mailing list for alumni! (Note: you can sign up for this even if it's been more than a few years since you graduated!) Contact Alvea to update your details.

If you have any surplus non-perishable food items that you would like to donate to the Chaplaincy before you leave, please contact Alvea.

If you will be moving to a different college, let us know when you have a new email address so that we can update our records.

If you have any small or medium-sized practical items that you would like to donate to the Chaplaincy that can be used by other students (or that we may donate on to a charity like JRS if needed), please contact Alvea. In the last couple of years, we have received items like a neck warmer, kettle, suitcase, saucepans, duvets and pillows, among other things.
Over the summer, we hope to inventory our stock so the sooner we know what we have, the easier it will be to find something when requested.

Students - let us know if you are in Oxford over the summer. We can add you to the ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฝ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜.

ย The Chaplains - Fr Damian, Alvea and Fr William

Please see our Facebook Page for the latest updates.

Being a Catholic at University can be a challenge. The Chaplaincy exists to support you through your journey of faith, providing opportunities for prayer times and liturgies which will deepen your relationship with Christ.ย 

Each morning, the Chaplains gather for a time of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, from 7:15am, to which all students are welcome. This is followed by Mass on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and a shared breakfast.

 

We hold Mass Mon-Sat at 12:15pm, and Confession is available regularly and upon request from any of the priest Chaplains.

During the three Oxford terms, we hold a range of other services which, as far as possible, coincide with great feasts and liturgical seasons. Advent Carols in Michaelmas, and Reconciliation and Stations of the Cross in Hilary draw us into the richness of the Church’s year.

We hold a regular Lectio Divina group during term (time and day tbc), and support student prayer initiatives when they arise.

You can find all the information on services, prayer times, and spirituality on the pages in this section.

Sacraments

Ignatian Spirituality

Our Priest Chaplains all belong to the Society of Jesus, a religious order founded by St Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. Ignatian Spirituality is central to the life of the Chaplaincy. You can discover more about it here.

To the extent that it is possible, we offer one-to-one Ignatian spiritual direction.

College Masses

Each term, we celebrate Mass in almost all of Oxford’s College Chapels. Find our schedule here.
