Covid update:

While we hoped to be out of isolation on Saturday, the University has strongly advised us to continue isolating until Sunday night. We are sorry to say that we have to postpone the farewell for Frs Ian and Nick again. We will let you know when this has been rescheduled, and what form it may take.
The public Mass on Saturday the 19th has been cancelled as well.
We hope to see you next week. If you are going down from Oxford before we are out of isolation, we do hope you have a wonderful summer and wish you all the best with your next adventure! Do remember to send us your non-university address to keep in touch.
Those of you who have expressed an interest in the Barmouth retreat, we will be in touch shortly.
Best wishes from all of us at the Chaplaincy
