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.
After a long 24 hours of travel, we arrived in Kota Kinabalu. We spent two days there, acclimatising and getting started on our expedition before travelling for 3 hours into Tenom to start our project work. With your generosity some of the money that has been raised went towards building an extension to the community church, which doesn't get government funding as the community are Christian.
The Senior Leadership Team and the Governors of English Martyrs Catholic Primary School, the only Catohlic Primary school in the Parish of Rutland have circulated a letter appealing for support from the Parish and the wider public. To read the letter please Click Here
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.
