Happy Feast Day!

In place of the celebration of thanksgiving we all had planned, Fr Peter and Fr Graham have recorded a message for today with Fr Gerry, the Salesian Provincial.

Bishop William and Canon Stephen have also sent a message of thanks and some encouraging news for the future. Please see the message in full after this video:


During the COVID-19 period when public acts of worship are suspended, Confession will be available in church on Saturdays for an extended period (4:30 - 5:30pm). A separate arrangement can be made to celebrate the sacrament in church by calling: 01865 770910

OLHOC - a Catholic Parish in Cowley, Oxford

What's in a name? In our case, quite a lot! Our Lady Help of Christians, the title of our parish, links us with many churches throughout the world who have the same dedication. This title of Mary the mother of Jesus, was very dear to St John Bosco the founder of the Salesians who cared for the parish until 2020. Wherever the title of Our Lady Help of Christians is found there is a good chance that there is a Salesian connection somewhere.

The acronym OLHOC Cowley is a handy way for us to label our presence on the web. May the guiding Help of Christians continue to help us navigate whether offline or on.
