About Us

Society to raise awareness of the Catholic Community on campus, open to all faiths and denominations as well as those who are non-religious.

      

Our society aims to raise awareness of the Catholic Community on campus, but we are open to all faiths and denominations, providing both pastoral and spiritual support for all on campus. We work closely with the ecumenical chaplaincies at both Brighton and Sussex Universities run by our Catholic chaplains: Claire O' Sullivan at Brighton (claireosullivan@brighton.ac.uk), and Fr Rod Jones at Sussex. You do not have to be religious to be a member of our society, we are here for non-judgemental pastoral support too! Find us online at http://catholicstudents.org/
