Companions of Malta
This student charity for the marginalised within the community which works together with various local Catholic and Anglican churches. Blackfriars' students help organisatise of some of the core work including a soup-run for the homeless in Oxford, which takes place twice weekly from here.
Enjoy singing? The Schola Magna sings at Mass and Vespers on Sunday evenings twice a month and for major feasts. Our repertoire of polyphonic motets and Gregorian chant brings together Hall students, Dominican friars, and experienced musicians from the Blackfriars congregation. For more information, contact the House Cantor, Fr Matthew Jarvis, or the Organist and Choral Director, Mr Hamish Dustagheer.
The Hall plans to field teams in cuppers, Teddy Hall relays and the Town and Gown 10k. this coming academic year.
With the Prior, and Vice-regent, Fr David Goodill back in goal, the team hopes to regain past glories in 2016-17.
The group runs social and speaker events throughout the year, including the popular Trinity Term cream tea.
JCR Committee and Events
Given our small size our JCR (Junior Common Room - undergraduate students) and MCR (Middle Common Room - graduate students) form one Joint Common Room (JCR). The JCR Committee organises a range of activities.
Graduate students and Hall Fellows (the Senior Common Room, SCR) combine for academic and social events each term.
The annual Freshers Fair is a good time to find out what's available.
On 25th November Blackfriars hosted a Thanksgiving meal for friars, staff and students.
