Pope Francis Holds Weekly Audience



We want to give a very warm welcome to all students and staff who are beginning the new academic year this autumn. Some of you are just starting out; many of you are returning to continue your studies. We hope you have a great year in your colleges, in your places of residence, and in your faith. This website has some of the basic information about Catholic Chaplaincy within the Diocese of Westminster. It is still under construction, so please pop back to see how it is developing. And for more regular updates please visit the Newman House Facebook Page here.

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.
