New University Chaplain

The Universe tells us: "Crispian Hollis, the chairman of the Oxford Chaplaincy Board, has announced that Fr John Moffat SJ will succeed Fr Jeremy Fairhead as Roman Catholic Chaplain at Oxford University from September 2007.
Fr Fairhead has been appointed to Rome to oversee the department for the pastoral care of students within the Pontifical Council for Migrants and Itinerants.
Fr Moffat studied Classics at Oxford University before entering the Society of Jesus in 1982.
He studied Theology at Campion Hall, Oxford, and the Jesuit College in Innsbruck, and has been Chaplain at St Ignatius College in Middlesex since 2000."

Welcome back to Oxford, Fr Moffat! Good luck with the new job, Fr Fairhead!

    Gosh, this is no man's land territory. A priest who was actually at Oxford University! And who read a proper subject as well!

    Is he actually a Roman Catholic as well?

  2. Yes he is. He's my brother and I think you'll like him.
