Service Times and Vacation Closures

Michaelmas Term 2021

Dear All,

At long last, and as we are now living under "Covid-safe" guidance, we have decided to re-open to Chapel to visitors as well as our own students.

The Chapel will formally re-open for Mass on Sunday 31st October 2021 - the Solemnity of All Saints.

We are still trying to keep everyone safe, so we would ask you to:

  • Please wear a face-covering
  • Please use the sanitiser by the door
  • Please sit in the places with a GREEN tick in the Chapel - we will probably introduce more spaces if demand requires it
  • Sunday Mass - for the time being Mass will be SAID not sung, but
    • We are auditioning for a new Chapel Schola
    • We may experiment with some Organ Music while we re-establish the Schola
    • I will restart the posting the Sunday Homilies on the website

Please be assured that - whether near or far - we continue to pray for you all each day!

With every prayer and blessing,

Fr Oswald
