Seven Women on Holy Saturday

31st March, 2018

Holy Saturday is a unique opportunity to reflect on the central event of Christianity. In particular, today we're required to wait for God--to patiently look forward to the victory of Easter without simply skipping over the trauma of Good Friday. This in-betweenness can be difficult, but it is an essential part of the Christian life.

Hall Ends Term with Farewell to Ex-Master

The Campion Hall community marked the end of Hilary Term 2018 last week, and in doing so had the opportunity to say farewell to one of the Hall’s most senior and distinguished members. After teaching philosophy for nearly three decades at Heythrop College in London, Rev’d Dr Gerry Hughes, SJ, led Campion Hall as Master from 1998 to 2006; he continued to tutor in philosophy at the Hall after his term as Master came to an end, and in recent years has served as a source of guidance, wit, and wisdom for all members of the Campion community.
