WELCOME

Welcome to the University of Sunderland Catholic Chaplaincy!
The Chaplaincy is a student support network, as well as a community of people from all over the world who come together to explore and celebrate the Catholic faith.

VISION FOR THE CHAPLAINCY

Our vision for the chaplaincy is that it may provide a welcoming, relaxed and safe environment for students to meet, socialise, and discover more about the Catholic faith.

THE CHAPLAINS

Whether you are a Catholic or not, we are here to journey with all students, and our experienced and friendly Chaplains, Fr Marc and Mary are always willing to listen and ensure that you get the support that you need.

CATHOLIC SOCIETY

The Catholic Society (CathSoc) was established by students to provide an active and vibrant Catholic presence in the University. The Society is student-led and works very closely with the Chaplains to plan and organise events. If you would like to become a member, please contact our President to find out more at sunderlandcathsoc@gmail.com
