Oxford Meditative Groups
Oxford Meditative Groups (OMG) gives students the chance to participate in meditation sessions hosted by Jesus College in the Habakkuk Room and led by different faith groups on Tuesdays at 5.00pm throughout term. If you are hurrying from academic commitments finishing at 5pm you will be able to slip in quietly. The various traditions and the dates their groups are attending are listed below. There will always be a number of people there so rest assured it will not be intimidatingly intimate.

The Chapel Weekend is at Hilfield Friary 7-9 April. This weekend is to take some time for God and enjoy some peace as Holy Week begins. Hilfield Friary is an Anglican Franciscan Community of brothers, with men, woman, and children living alongside them. Their aims include promoting justice and reconciliation in a troubled world, and proclaiming a wise ecology in the face of our culture’s environmental foolishness. The Community shares in a rhythm of daily prayer, helps to look after the Friary land and buildings, and offers hospitality to guests and visitors. People of all backgrounds are welcome – Christians, those of other faiths and of none – for rest, retreat, and renewal of life.
It will be our sixth visit as a group, and in the past everyone’s adored it. Look at the Chapel Facebook page to see some photos. If you are interested, do contact the Chaplain.
