The Chaplains

It’s wonderful to have joined the Catholic Chaplaincy here in Oxford and to be rediscovering a city and University I first got to know as an undergraduate back in the 1980s. I have been a Jesuit now for 30 years, 20 years a priest. Most of my work has been with young people (in a youth project, school, retreat centre and as the Jesuit Vocations Director).
Hoping you will help me to do all here AMDG, to the great glory of God!

I have moved to Oxford from London where I have just completed my MA in French Literature. I am already enjoying all of what this beautiful city has to offer…especially its coffee shops! In my spare time, I love exploring new places, mountain climbing, dancing and cooking. I also volunteer for a national pro-life charity, the Alliance of Pro-Life Students.
This is my first Chaplaincy role, and I am very excited to get stuck in and to meet you all. If you see me around, don’t hesitate to say hello!

It is a great pleasure to be back in Oxford, after a three-year absence, during which I was teaching at Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, then at St Mary’s University, Twickenham and finally Heythrop College.
To be back in this place where I have spent (I calculate) 20 years of my life feels like a real homecoming, even though my present task of Assistant Chaplain is very different from the previous job, which was teaching New Testament and Greek in the Theology Faculty. I have been a Jesuit for nearly five decades, all that time as a teacher.
Before I came back to Oxford, in early 2002, I worked for many years in South Africa, during the most interesting period of that country’s history.
I am delighted to be back with you, and look forward to meeting you all.
