Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding.

I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop...
It was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Juventutum Oxford - Mass for St Chad


Juventutem Oxford
is being launched on Wednesday this week at SS Gregory and Augustine in Woodstock Road.

There will be a polyphonic Sung Mass for the feast of St Chad, patron of the cathedral and Archdiocese of Birmingham, at the church at 6 pm.
The intention of the Mass will be for the Pro-Life organization, the Good Counsel Network.

Afterwards there will be a meal after for young Catholics 18-35 attached or intrigued by the traditional Mass at a restaurant of as yet unknown location in central Oxford.

For more information there is a facebook page:

Please support this, even if you are outside the Juventutum age category, either (or both) by attending or in your prayers.
