Church of the Week: Chapel of St. Bede, Oxford

This week's church isn't a church, but The Chapel of St. Bede, a small chapel that is part of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Oxford, Ohio. It is named for the Venerable Bede, an English monk, scholar, and author who lived from c. 672-735.

It is located on East Walnut Street in Oxford, on the corner of Walnut and Poplar. I have prayed briefly in this chapel on a couple occasions.

The Madonna icon hanging in the chapel (above) is one of my favorites.


  1. I am so happy to learn that this chapel is still there. I used to love being able to slip in there to pray and slip out again, without seeing anyone, the several times I needed it when I was a freshman at Miami in the early 1980s..

  2. My parents were married in St. Bede's Chapel in 1952. Both have passed on now. It has been many years since I visited Oxford. Very nice to see these pictures.
