The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew. In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come. “

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium

Who are we?

 The Catholic Chaplaincy for the Universities and other Higher Education Institutions in the Diocese of Westminster fosters the development of Christian faith and practice within the academic community. As a visible presence it supports and encourages both students and staff to grow in the knowledge and love of God. It forms a community graced by the Spirit to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed.

The way we seek to effect our Mission has a threefold dimension: community, spirituality and mission  

  • Community - To provide access to the Catholic Faith Community, its worship, teaching and fellowship and so to provide a place of belonging.
  • Spirituality - To provide a place of encounter with the depths of Christian spirituality through liturgy, prayer, the sacraments and other spiritual exercises.
  • Mission - To make known the Gospel of Christ within the institutions served and to encourage a spirit of service to the world.
