Join us for Mass with music led by our worship band. Afterwards, there is social time in the Chaplaincy room with soft and alcoholic drinks, and a time to catch up with each other.

Registered Charity Number: 1143450

Serving Newcastle University and Northumbria University

A warm welcome to you if you are a student or member of staff at either Newcastle or Northumbria Universities.

Fr. Andrew Shaw and Mia Fox, the two Catholic Chaplains, Emma Morrison, the Chaplaincy Ambassador, and Ozzie the chaplaincy cat, are delighted that you have visited our page.  Take some time to browse through the site, in particular our Services, What's On and Gallery pages.


Welcome to our Chaplaincy! We have a diverse community of students (and some staff) and there are many ways in which you can get involved. Central to the life of the Chaplaincy is our Sunday Mass with social time afterwards, and we always have something on a Wednesday during term time.


The Chaplaincy is part of, and resourced by, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle and both Fr Andrew and Mia offer pastoral and spiritual support, exploration of the Catholic faith, and facilitate community outreach where possible.


We have lots of social events at the Chaplaincy, headed up by our Ambassador and Socials Committee, and it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.


There is a Newcastle University Catholic Society (CathSoc) which organises regular trips, for example, cinema, hikes and weekends away.
