Congratulations to our most recent graduates!
Hall students and the JCR (Joint Common Room) participate in and run a number of activities both in the Hall and the wider university, and local community.
Companions of Malta
This is a student charity for the marginalised within the community. The group works together with various local Catholic and Anglican churches, and some of the students at Blackfriars help organise the core work, including a soup-run for thehomeless in Oxford, which takes place twice weekly from the Hall.
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.
The group runs social and speaker events throughout the year, including the popular Trinity Term cream tea.
JCR Committee and Events
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.
Blackfriars Hall was pleased to welcome the Very Revd Dr Martin Ganeri OP
