"There are no Pantomimes in June"


However there is a crib at the Oxford Oratory.

Timothy Newbery of London has designed us a new structure for the crib, and today has set it up in church to make sure that it fits in the space.

The old structure had reached the end of its life, and we also need to have something that will not damage the paintwork when the Sacred Heart Chapel is redecorated. Hence the new crib is a part of our Reaffirmation and Renewal Campaign.

Anyone who would like to contribute towards this splendid new crib should speak to Fr Daniel.

We hope from now on to adopt the Roman custom of keeping the crib up from Christmas day until Candlemas on 2nd February.
