Being Catholic at Surrey

 Catholic students and staff gather as a community on Tuesday evenings on campus to celebrate Mass and enjoy each other’s company over coffee & biscuits and regular community meals. 

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.

 In 2012 the Catholic Association University of Surrey (CAUS) was founded; this is a student association and is independent of the Student Union. You can find it through Facebook and Twitter.

There is also a weekly Newsletter during Semester; to go on the mailing list please email John at
