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.

Priestly Ordination of John Hunwicke - June 27th



As many regular readers will no doubt be aware my good friend John Hunwicke of the Ordinariate will be ordained as a priest on Wednesday June 27th at 7 pm in the Oxford Oratory by Bishop William Kenney.

I am sure many of John Hunwicke's friends will be there to support him on this occasion and to wish him well for his continuing ministry as both pastor and scholar.
