Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy is open and welcoming to all faiths and is committed to ensuring that all are free to worship.

Newman University Chaplaincy is proud to be at the heart of the university, encouraging all the community to engage in and feel part of Newman's Catholic ethos. The Chaplaincy exists to enable all at Newman to explore and experience "Life to the Full" Jn 10:10. Students and staff are welcome to join in the activities of the Chaplaincy, including services, retreats and social activities. The Chaplaincy is open and welcoming to all faiths and is committed to ensuring that all are free to worship.

The Chaplain, Margaret Holland works alongside students and staff, providing support, encouragement and assistance, as well as organising and leading prayer and worship and God knows what else!   Fr Dries van den Akker SJ, joins the Community to lead the celebration of the sacraments and looks forward to getting to know as many of you as possible.   Mass is celebrated in the University Chapel on Mondays (8.20am) and Wednesdays (8.20am) in semester time, starting from 25th September 2017.

Siobhan Doyle, our 'Step into the Gapper' works in partnership with Cafod focusing on international development and social justice.  

The Chaplaincy supports the Christian Union, CathSoc and Islamic Society (ISoc) who meet regularly. Details of times and venues of their meetings and events are on the notice screens around the University. For more information please email m.holland@newman.ac.uk
