Oxford Catholic Chaplaincy Latest News

Click here for a message from the Chaplains - September 17
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.

(pre-MT21)
Masses at the Chaplaincy:
Sundays 11am (followed by tea/coffee) and 5.45pm.
Mon-Fri 6pm.
Student Mass and (free!) breakfast on Wednesdays at 8am.
