As part of our Easter Celebrations there was a Rogation Mass on May 7th; the word Rogation comes from the Latin word rogare meaning to 'ask'. It was a lovely warm day and no coats were needed.
We rejoice not only in the Resurrection and Ascension, but also in the garden full of blossom.
On May 9th a blue plaque was unveiled to Fr Benson SSJE, very close to the first Chapel of SSJE in Marston Street Oxford. The founding of SLG owes much to SSJE and Sr Margaret Theresa was very pleased to be present when the plaque was unveiled.
On May 21 and 22nd, the Eucharist will be at 8.30am. (Also on June 26th)
On June 24th, the Eucharist may be later; please phone for details.
