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.
