Welcome to the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church Oxford

Sacred Heart Church in Blackbird Leys, Oxford is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. We hope that you will find our website useful and enjoy searching through the various aspects of life in the parish. Here you will be able to check our weekly newsletter, news and forthcoming parish events, read about how to go about with Sacramental preparation and find out Mass times and other services. The memorabilia is a pictorial capture of parish events which we hope will tell the story of what is going on in the parish. You will find useful links to other websites of institutions closely linked to the parish.

Whatever your reason for visiting us we pray that God will bless your search and grant you many blessings.
