The University of Southampton Catholic Society (CathSoc) is a real joy to be part of, even if we say so ourselves! We're just one big family with a wonderful mix of students from many different backgrounds and countries, which makes it possible for everyone to feel welcome and at home. Our main activity is hosting a Mass every Sunday during term time in Building 67 (The Nightingale Building) at 6:30PM, follwed by a home-cooked meal on campus.
We also organise a CathSoc night every Tuesday at 7PM in the Faith and Reflection Centre, where we get a chance to relax and meet likeminded students in a friendly and open environment - there may be food here too if you're lucky!.
To top it all off, we offer the opportunity to go on various trips such as our very own retreat on the Isle of Wight in November! It has always been a much-loved and enjoyed weekend away from the stresses of university life. The society is based at the Faith and Reflection Centre, and we have support from our wonderful chaplains, Sr Valentina and Fr Jaya, who are always available to provide help, advice or just have a chat - and of course, the student committee are always there to help you feel right at home! Everyone is welcome to our events, even if you haven't been to Mass in years (or aren't even Catholic!), so feel free to bring along a friend or flatmate if you wish! How could you say no to all this?! We can't wait to meet you! P.S join our Facebook page to keep up to date with everything going on at the society: http://www.facebook.com/groups/uos.cathsoc/.
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Catholic Society this year are:
