Catholic Society

Catholic Society

"Biggest and best on campus...", "Most wide-ranging programme of any society...", so wrote KRED, the student newspaper.


  • Maybe it's because we have 500+ members...
  • Maybe it's because we have our own club room at St John Stone House, the Catholic Chaplaincy, with satellite TV and its own fully licensed bar, The Barque Inn - "The cheapest bar on campus" (our chaplain has a publican's licence!)...
  • Maybe it's because of our trips like Bruges - The Venice of the North or Char-à-banc to Cambridge...
  • Maybe it's because of our weekend retreat: Paris in the Springtime...
  • Maybe it's because every Tuesday we have challenging speakers from Cabinet Ministers to Miners' Leaders...
  • Maybe it's because we pay for helpers each Easter to go on the HCPT Pilgrimage to Lourdes...
Whatever the reason: Whether you are committed, lapsed, or simply curious to come to the biggest, the most international, and the friendliest society on campus - the Cathsoc is for you!
