Our main activity is hosting a Sunday Mass on campus every week during term time. This takes place in the Faith and Reflection center at 6:30PM - we also organise social events, such as CathSoc night at the Faith and Reflection center, Tuesday nights from 7PM.
Also opportunities to profess and deepen our faith through prayer and worship groups. We also go retreats both in the UK, such as the Isle of Wight, and abroad. In the past we have been to Brazil, Italy and Poland. All this for World Youth Day an international event lasting a week in any country of the world where we meet with the Pope, so worship pray and strengthen in our faith.
We are not an evangelistic group but we reach out to the local community through our links with CAFOD and local parishes, mainly Immaculate Conception in Portswood and St Edmund's on The Avenue.
The society is based at the Chaplaincy with support from our chaplain, Sr Valentina and a committee of students who run the society and the Masses.
Anyone is welcome to join us for Mass on Sunday - just turn up at 6.30pm to the Faith and Refection center in Highfield Campus.
There is usually food afterwards :-) We are predominately Roman Catholics, but we have members from the Eastern Rite and the Orthodox Community regularly joining us.
If you've made it this far, you should at least come and meet us now! We're very welcoming and very normal - see you on Sunday?.
These are the current membership plans offered by Catholic Society, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.
All student groups within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Catholic Society this year are:
