The Personal Ordinariate of

Our Lady of Walsingham

under the Patronage of Blessed John Henry Newman


The Oxford Ordinariate Mission meets at Holy Rood, Abingdon Road, Oxford for a Sung Mass on Saturdays at 5pm.  All are welcome. The Mass is usually the Vigil Mass of Sunday but, in any case, fulfils Catholics’ Sunday Obligation to go to Mass. Before Mass there are Confessions (from 4.30pm). The congregation includes former Anglicans who have become Catholics and cradle Catholics who find that the day, the time, the place or the style suits them. Some Holy Rood parishioners come along. Some registered members of the Ordinariate prefer to attend Holy Rood on Sunday, or go to some other Catholic Church for Mass.
The Oxford Ordinariate Mission has adopted the new 'Divine Worship' Missal, as directed by the Holy See for use in the Personal Ordinariates for former Anglicans who have been received into the full communion of the Catholic Church. Its texts and practices are drawn from traditional Anglican and Catholic worship. We celebrate facing East, using incense, plainsong, and polyphony, as well as singing hymns, mostly from the Anglican tradition. Music is provided by the Newman Consort, which specialises in singing liturgical music.
The Ordinariate is not part of the Portsmouth Diocese, although the pastor of the Holy Rood Ordinariate Group, Fr Daniel Lloyd, is also priest-in-charge of Hinksey Catholic Parish. Nationally, the Ordinariate is equivalent to a diocese and its Ordinary, Mgr Keith Newton, is a full member of the Bishops’ Conference, even though he himself is not a bishop. One of the priests attached to the Oxford Ordinariate Mission, Mgr Andrew Burnham, is one of two Assistants to the Ordinary.
