The Chaplains - Fr Matthew, Alvea and Fr William
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.
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-Tue-Thu-Fri-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.
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.
