Catholic Parishes of the Immaculate Conception, Bicester, and Holy Trinity, Hethe.

Archdiocese of Birmingham.


We regret that with immediate effect both the Saturday 6.00 p.m.  Mass in Bicester and the Sunday 8.00 a.m. Mass in Hethe will be suspended. This is because of poor attendance at both. The situation will be reviewed in mid-February and a further announcement will be made at that time. Thank you again for your continued understanding and co-operation at this difficult time.

Stay safe and well.  

All Masses will continue online so, if you are not able to be present in church for Mass then please join us on our live stream:

An Act of Spiritual Communion

We continue to be exempt from our Sunday obligation during lockdown and are encouraged to make a Spiritual Communion
when we desire to be in union with Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
This can be done whilst you watch a live stream of Mass being offered.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
