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.

Extraordinary Form Masses at SS Gregory and Augustine in October

I understand from Fr Saward at SS Gregory and Augustine in Woodstock Road here in Oxford that in addition to usual, weekly, Wednesday Mass in the Extraordinary Form at 6pm, there will be the First Friday Mass on 1st October at 6 (to be celebrated by Fr Armand de Malleray FSSP), and a special Mass for the First Thursday/Our Lady of the Rosary on the 7th, again, as always, at 6pm.
