Chat with us
The best way to define the Catholic society would be to say that we are a group of eager and dynamic people who want to connect with those around us.
Our weekly meetings provide a place for us to discuss our thoughts, around like-minded people and also get to know new perspectives and different ways to see the world.
All are welcomed, no matter your faith. We have plenty of socials, including dinners and pub quizzes which are a great opportunity to get closer together, have fun and learn.
Retreats and pilgrimages are also done often, giving you an opportunity to strengthen your faith and spend time together with our group. We also aim at supporting our community outside campus through volunteering work and charity support.
Main meeting: Wednesdays @ 7pm - check our social media where we post what we will be doing that week. We usually vary between socials like pub quizzes, talks and faith discussions.
Prayer & Chat: Teusdays @ 12pm - take half an hour of your day to switch off and pray and reflect with us!
Mass on campus will resume from Sunday 19th of September and will carry on all throughout the year.
Mass is celebrated twice-weekly in Founder's Chapel by our Catholic Chaplain, Fr John Dickson. Founder's Chapel can be found underneath the clock tower by the entrance. Due to current restrictions, Founder's Chapel is currently open until 5pm on Weekdays only. All Services and Masses will continue to be streamed live on Fr John's Facebook page.

Your bargain £5 Catholic Society membership includes admittance to all weekly meetings as well as end of term dinners (if possible). Our regular pilgrimage trips will be free of charge to members, where possible. Previous day trips include Cambridge, Salisbury, Arundel and Guildford.
For non-members each day trip costs the same as a membership, so it's worth joining! You’ll also get an opportunity to join us on trips abroad (previous destinations include Rome and Barcelona) as well as free day retreat excursions throughout the year.
Your membership fee helps our society function and allows to us run our events, such as our hugely anticipated Christmas Dinner as well as covering the cost of travel for our day trips.
We pride ourselves on being a society that is huge value for money as along with all this you’ll have the opportunity to socialise and make friends in an inclusive environment.
Over the course of the year we host weekly meetings which include: bible studies, discussions about faith, external speakers and pizza dinner.
We also host several social events such as; pub quizzes, Christmas dinner and BBQs.
We go on day trips, for example: Oxford, Salisbury Cathedral, Canterbury and Cambridge (usually free for members).
Day or extended retreats are also something we do often:
We are always open to new members, and are very excited to meet new faces.
