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.

Latin Mass Society Pilgrimage to Oxford - October 20th


The annual Latin Mass Society Pilgrimage to Oxford will take place on Saturday October 20th.

The Solemn Mass will, as last year, be offered in the traditional Dominican Rite  at Blackfriars at 11. This is a particularly beautiful form of the Mass, and close to the Use of Sarum in its structure and ceremonial.

After lunch there will be the usual procession commemorating the Catholic Martyrs of Oxford at 2 and there will be Benediction at 3.
