Oxford has a complex history of both schism and interaction between the Catholic and Anglican churches. Anglicanism is the dominant tradition now but it is worth remembering the long and continuous Catholic presence in the city. This beautiful and serene church stands just outside of...More

Located in Woodstock Road in Oxford is this wonderful church where you can come in and remember those that need your support. Great place to light a candle to remember.

Popped in here to have a look around and was amazed how beautiful and serene this church is. I lit a candle in remembrance of my Grandparents and had a little sit for a few minutes. Lovely place.

I would recommend even if you are not a catholic to visit and attend Mass (11am Sunday Latin Mass) to take in the atmosphere, the music and peacefulness. I personally felt it was a beautiful occasion to to welcome in 2017

I went to the old Latin mass on Sunday morning. It was full of the sounds and smells of my childhood. The church was full and the service was spiritual and moving. A lovely church which I will attend again if I return to Oxford.

If you're a Catholic looking for beautiful liturgies, then make haste to the Oratory. The Tridentine Low Mass is offered, as well as Novus Ordo Masses in Latin (ad orientem), with outstanding polyphony, chant, and other choral music. The organist is top-notch, too.

One of the few catholic churches in Oxford, this place is beautiful and a very good place for prayer. I attended an evening mass and I experienced something totally different. It only lasted 30 mins, and people go to the front, and kneel before the...More

The church is open daily and is quiet and peaceful inside. Free entry too and the place looks well-cared for and maintained. Good selection of books and gifts and the café is open on some mornings, although I visited in the afternoon and into the...More
