Here is what some of our regular visitors said about what the Chaplaincy means to them:


a home from home…”                     

      “a place where you can be yourself”

                “a place of stability”                                           

                              “”growing together”

“somewhere you can get advice and help from peers”                                  

                        “being supported in living out my Catholic faith”

                                          “a place of happiness, joy, and the Spirit”               

                                                          “an ‘open space’ –  not a clique”

“somewhere you can be accepted”
