The Church of Holy Rood, located near Folly Bridge on the Abingdon Road in Oxford, is one of the four Churches in the Parish of North Hinksey. Whether you are new to the Parish, a visitor to the area, or an existing Church member, the Church of Holy Rood is a welcoming congregation with a large number of practicing Catholics of varying nationalities joining in our faith celebration every week.

As well as the weekday and Sunday general Masses, the Church also hosts a Mass on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons for the Portuguese speaking community in Oxford.

“Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I.” (Matt 18:20)

Christ is the inspiration and the motivation of all that we do and are in the parish. We are called to build a personal relationship with Christ through our prayer life.

As a parish, we try to provide opportunities for prayer – the celebration of the Eucharist being the parish’s central prayer. In order to prepare for the Eucharist, we need to provide other opportunities for prayer. Throughout the year we gather to prepare for the major feasts of Advent and Lent, the rosary is prayed regularly, and various prayer groups meet. Prayer brings us together so that we are more than just a mere collection of isolated individuals.

If you have any ideas that would help in the development of the parish’s prayer life, we would love to hear from you.
