Welcome to Hinksey Catholic Parish
Our wider church community
“It is only through shadows that one comes to know the light”
St Catherine of Siena
The Parish of North Hinksey is a Roman Catholic community based in the northern most part of the Portsmouth Diocese. There are three Churches within the North Hinksey Parish which cover a large rural area as well as part of Oxford city and its neighbouring villages. The Parish is led by Father Daniel Lloyd. Sunday Mass is celebrated in two of our Churches – Our Lady of the Rosary, Botley (which is our Parish Church), and Holy Rood Church, Abingdon Road. The three Churches have strong individual communities but also come together regularly to share in the whole Parish’s faith celebration and the groups, activities, and learning programmes that take place within the Parish community. Whether you are new to the parish or an existing church member, please explore our individual Church websites to join in our faith celebration and to find out how you can get the most out of the Church community.
