Being Catholic at Surrey

Welcome to Surrey, Catholic Chaplaincy at Surrey is here to support you in your faith, your daily life and in your experience of University life.  The University offers a wide range of opportunities to learn and gain experience.  The Chaplaincy aims to offer you a real experience of Catholic life, through meeting with other Catholics, prayer, devotions and Mass.  We hope to have regular Sunday Masses back on Campus for the 2014 academic year. There is also a weekly Newsletter during Semester; to go on the mailing list please email John at .

As Chaplain, John is available to see staff & students. If you would like to meet up to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to get in touch with him. He is always happy to meet up for a chat. He is also always ready to offer support to anyone in difficulty, whether these be with regard to work, personal issues or studies, regardless of beliefs.

I look forward to meeting you and to walking with you on your University journey.
