Campion hosts conference on the 'Common Good'

Scholars and experts recently gathered at Campion Hall to discuss competing conceptions of the common good. What is the common good? How can we promote it? What can ideas about the common good tell us about the relationship between the state and the free market? These and other questions were raised and discussed by a distinguished group of philosophers, theologians, social justice workers, and civil society leaders.

Campion Welcomes New Librarian

Wilma Minty is a native of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, Scotland. After schooling locally, she gained a Master of Theology (Old Testament and New Testament) degree at St. Andrews University.  She came to Oxford in 1976 to pursue graduate work in Cuneiform and Targumic Studies but soon discovered that her métier lay in its libraries rather than in the mainstream of academia.  In 1978, she was appointed Librarian of the (then) newly combined collections of the University’s Theology Faculty and of Pusey House on the site of the present St. Cross College.

Jesuit Intellectual Apostolate meeting

Over several days in early June, Jesuits from the four provinces of Britain, Ireland, Netherlands and Flanders (N. Belgium) met at Campion Hall to discuss the Society of Jesus' intellectual apostolate. The meeting was for Jesuits who are under 65 and are working in the academic apostolate from these provinces, and featured paper presentations on the theme "Being Human Today" in response to Fr General's 2014 letter on the intellectual apostolate of the Society.

Campion hosts guests for annual Garden Party

The Campion Hall community was pleased to welcome guests for its annual Garden Party last week. Held during one of Oxford's rare days of sunshine, the Garden Party was a pleasant opportunity for friends of the Hall, alumni of Jesuit schools around the world, and various other well-wishers to come by and toast what was hopefully a productive academic year. The Master of Campion Hall, Rev'd Dr James Hanvey, SJ, presided and hosted while members of the Hall community helped make guests feel at home. 

Campion Welcomes Distinguished Guests

The old Irish greeting, Cead Mile Failte, “a hundred thousand welcomes”, was clearly appropriate at Campion Hall on 13th May, when Oxford University’s recently appointed Vice-Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson FRSA, formally graced the Hall with her company for the first time, at a Guest Night dinner at which participants included some members of the Jesuit community and other guests who also hailed from her native Ireland.
