Fr General’s visit started with a walk through the grounds of Christ Church College and into the city centre, stopping at iconic sites such as the Sheldonian Theatre and Bodleian Library. Upon returning, he was given a tour of Campion Hall and a viewing of some of its treasures, including Edmund Campion’s Agnus Dei and his copy of the Summa Totius Theologiae. A highlight of his visit was meeting with the Laudato Si Research Institute members and planting a quince tree with the Hall community.
Fr General presided at Mass and spoke of the value of Campion Hall as a Jesuit institution at the University of Oxford. His visit was a significant opportunity for the Hall community and demonstrated his support for the work and mission of the Hall.
