Worship and Sacraments


Catholic Mass

The Celebration of Holy Mass 


Mass is celebrated at 11.00am every Sunday in the Trent Building Great Hall. Please enter via the main doors of the Great Hall that open onto the car park on the Beeston side of the Trent Building. For information on weekday Masses please go to the Weekly Timetable page.

The Mass is the sacred action of the Church as the mystical body of Christ and as such the celebration of Mass on Sunday, the Lords day, is the heartbeat of the Catholic community at the University.

Morning Prayer is prayed at 8.30am each morning in the Portland Chapel except for Tuesdays when we meet in the Chaplaincy.
