Hilary Term 2021

The Revd Andrew Foreshew-Cain is the Chaplain here at LMH.  He is also Acting Head of Welfare in the college and can be contacted about any aspect of pastoral care or welfare for staff or student.  He is very happy to meet with students to listen in confidence, to offer support and guidance and can help direct you to more specialist sources of support if needed.

Each week in full term this Hilary we will be joining in prayer every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 9pm using the ancient service of Compline (a short service of prayer and silence) on Zoom at 9pm to which students and staff are warmly invited.  The link is here and the passcode is 539282.  We use the traditional form of Compline that can be found in the Church of England App called Daily Prayer or via the Church of England website

During Hilary term there will be no services in Chapel on a Sunday evening but the choir will be working on a weekly short broadcast of words and music - Pause for Thought that will be available via email to the community.

Fr Andrew will also be saying Mass every Sunday morning at 9.30am on Zoom and you are warmly invited to join him, and a small congregation of people from his local village in the service of Holy Communion.  If you wanted to prepare a small piece of bread and a sip of wine for the service then you are invited to do so.  The link for the service is here  and the passcode is 880963. The service sheet will be available here.

You may also want to join in Sunday morning worship remotely at one of the Oxford city churches or your home parish.

For those still in college - the Chapel is in the Deneke set of buildings, and is open to all members of college as a place of silence and prayer, for meditation or just to sit in peace for a few minute.  There is a prayer board and a place to light candles for the people you love and for yourself.  There is also a piano that you may play, but please clean the keys with the cloths provided before and after use. Please observe the Covid directions that can be read at the entrance to the Chapel. 

Currently the Chapel is only open for individual prayer in line with the new national restrictions.
