Chaplaincy and Faith Support

Catholic Community

Catholic Community logo

The Catholic Community is one of the largest religious communities at the University. The community is comprised of the Student’s Union affiliated Catholic Society and the University Catholic Chaplaincy. Its purpose is to gather together students to share their faith experiences and who are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. You don’t have to be Catholic to join in; we welcome people of all faiths or none and offer friendship, support and hospitality to all.
