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.
Call to Holiness in Today’s World
Our Parish mission week will be from October 7th until October 10th.
Each day will start with morning Mass at 9.30 with sermon by Fr John Farrell, Prior Provincial of the English Province of the Order of Friars Preachers, followed by Exposition for 30 minutes and a short Benediction followed each evening with a series of talks and meditations using Scripture and Pope Francis’ Exhortation On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World, “Gaudete et Exsultate”.
Kairos is a Christian Mission which goes into prisons to show the transforming love of Jesus Christ to inmates. The mission is a five day programme which explains and demonstrates the Christian faith in action. Through the Bible, personal testimony and unconditional love, inmates come to understand that they can be forgiven, accepted and transformed through encountering Jesus.
