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.
We work together to grow and support the faith life of Catholic staff and students, organising talks, social events and communal prayer times.
We are available pastorally to anyone who may need a listening ear or spiritual guidance.
Do get in touch with us any time you would like to talk, either by email or simply dropping by Chaplaincy. We are always here for you, whatever difficulties you may you may be experiencing.
We hope to meet you very soon!
