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.
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.

Seeds of Hope
Campion Hall is pleased to host the University of Oxford's Vice Chancellor Professor Louise Richardson for the first Formal Guest Night of Trinity Term. A distinguished political scientist and accomplished educator, Professor Richardson became Oxford's first female Vice Chancellor in January of this year, prior to which she served as Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of St. Andrew's in Scotland and as Executive Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.
Campion Fellow and Librarian Rev'd Dr. Frank Turner, SJ delivered a Good Friday reflection on The Deposition by Flemish Baroque painter Anthony van Dyck. The painting is a vivid and evocative scene kept by the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. It is believed to have been painted around 1619, when van Dyck was an assistant to Rubens in Antwerp.
