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.
On Thursday night, we had a great evening of entertainment at our very own English Martyrs has got Talent! There were 15 acts, including singers, dancers, musicians, magicians and many more!
The children were amazing and the judges, Billy Ivory, Sarah Archer and Sarah Bell had a very difficult task of choosing 3 winners ...
£98 has been sent this week for the Sudan famine. Many thanks.
Has anyone got any used towels of any size at all that we can use for backpacks? They are desperately needed. We also need used children's summer clothes of any size, if you can help. Just pop them in the box in the Church porch. It’s such a privilege to be able to help these children in such a practical way.
Message from Magnus
"Thank you so much for your generous donations of backpacks. It is the only gift these children have ever received. Tagala from Malawi says 'I am very happy as I'll be able to keep my exercise books and pencils safely in my new bag. I'm always going to cherish it. It will help me learn. It's like I have won a prize'. Tagala is able to go to school now and receive a meal every day. On behalf of the 1,257,278 children around the world who receive Mary’s Meals every day, I thank you with all my heart for your kindness".
The Bishops of England and Wales will hold a National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress in Liverpool from 7th – 9th September 2018.
Cardinal Nichols wrote: "We seek to rejuvenate Eucharistic adoration in our parishes as the source of strength for our lives and for our mission, that of making present the love and compassion of Jesus in our society."
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.
