Father Stephen Dye, Rev Deacon Raymond Keogh and our parish community welcome you to our parish website of the Roman Catholic Parish of Rutland.
Our parish covers the county of Rutland which includes the two market towns of Oakham and Uppingham and the many villages of Rutland.
Holy Mass is celebrated everyday in the parish church of St Joseph's in Oakham with Latin Mass on a Friday evening. Holy Mass is also celebrated each Sunday in the 19th century private chapel at Exton Hall and once a month on Sunday in the Chapel at Uppingham School.
We are a thriving Parish with many activities and prayer groups that meet both at the church and in private homes.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.
The 4.30 pm Mass on Saturday 13th May will be a Confirmation Mass celebrated by Bishop Patrick for some of our young parishioners and students at Oakham and Uppingham Schools. It is likely that there will be over 20 Confirmandi plus relatives – that means the Church will be very full. I hope this will not inconvenience our regular Saturday Mass congregation too much. The 11.00 am Sunday Mass that weekend on 14th May will be less crowded.
A message from Magnus: "Thank you for everything you do for so many suffering children in this world. 1,500 children now receive a daily meal in Aleppo. A further 1,430 Syrian refugees are also receiving a meal thanks to your generosity. Together let us continue this journey one step at a time, one meal at a time, one child at a time. Thank you."
A huge thank you for the 25 exercise books, toothpaste and soap received this week. We can now complete 15 more backpacks for the children. Please keep it coming, especially larger shorts for the boys.
All contributions are really appreciated. Please just pop them in the box in the Church porch.
Letter to the Editor of the Tablet 20th Jan 1883. SIR,—Allow me to call the attention of your readers to my appeal in your columns. It is my last appeal. It is indeed most urgently needed that I should build next March at Oakham. Souls are perishing.
