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.
