QUB Catholic Chaplaincy

A community of faith and friendship at the heart of campus

The Catholic Chaplaincy

The Catholic Chaplaincy, located on Belfast’s Elmwood Avenue, is a vibrant, Christ-centred community of faith and friendship at the heart of Queen’s University. We provide space on campus for Catholic students and staff to meet, socialise, relax, learn, pray and share their faith.

We host regular events which form you in different aspects of faith, and help you meet other young Catholics while at university. We encourage you to engage in all aspects of university life with a concern for the common good so that you can respond positively to the challenges of our world today.

Whether you are a student, researcher, staff member or alumnus, know that we are here for you.

Our Team

Wherever you are on your journey of faith, we are here to assist and support you.  Our team is comprised of a priest-Chaplain, a lay Pastoral Manager, and volunteer students.  

We are motivated by a deep personal love of Christ and the Church.  We believe that God is at work through the Holy Spirit in the day-to-day events of our lives.  Through prayer and reflection we support you to make choices that align you more closely to the dynamic of Christ’s life of love and service.

Get Involved

Chaplaincy runs on the goodwill and support of students and members of the wider university community.  There are many opportunities to get involved and we’d love you to contribute in ways you’ll enjoy.
Get Involved


We hope that former students at Queen’s will want to keep in touch and support the work of Chaplaincy. If you are visiting Belfast know that you are welcome to drop by and say ‘hello’.

We are continuing to grow our Catholic Alumni Association.  It is an intergenerational and interconnected global network of former Queen’s students for whom Chaplaincy contributed positively to their university experience. It supports the ongoing faith formation of current and former students through initiatives which promote dialogue, community and partnership. If you register your details with us we’ll keep you up-to-date with developments.
