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

We are being invited to live more humbly.
