Welcome

Catholic Chaplaincy is a place for you to explore your faith as a young adult, to meet other young people with similar interests from a great range of backgrounds, and to get involved in activities and social outreach.

The main Catholic Chaplaincy Centre is at Newman House, 111 Gower Street, London WC1E 6AR – see the Newman House tab above for details. But most of the London colleges also have their own dedicated Catholic Chaplain and student Catholic Society with many activities taking place on campus. You can find your college on the menu above.

If you already have a strong faith, this is a chance to deepen it. If you are full of questions and doubts, this is a chance to share them and search for some honest answers about life and faith. Everyone is welcome. Don’t be shy. Come and visit Newman House or get in touch with your college chaplain directly.

This academic year (2016-17) we celebrate 50 years at Newman House, and there are extra jubilee events taking place throughout the year.

Redevelopment Plans

Newman House, London, UK

There are exciting redevelopment plans underway, for Newman House Catholic Centre, and for the wider work of University Chaplaincy around the Diocese of Westminster.

The plans will involve creating a world-class Chaplaincy Centre at Newman House, in the heart of the university district, with a new and larger chapel, improved facilities for community life and faith formation, a new conference centre for academic engagement, greater inclusivity through disabled access, outward-facing public areas that will attract visitors and passers-by.

At the same time, the hope is to expand the provision of university chaplains and develop a pastoral programme for each university campus that will help students experience the beauty and relevance of the Catholic faith, and help them to grow in their commitment to faith, prayer, service, works of mercy, evangelisation and the discovery of their vocation.
