Welcome to Liverpool and to our Chaplaincy

A warm welcome awaits you at the Catholic Chaplaincy.
We are based in the heart of Liverpool at St Philip Neri Church in Catharine Street and are here to support students and staff on their journey of faith.
Here is our weekly bulletin for this week:- Newsletter 22.04.2018
Minutes of the Chaplaincy Meeting of 14th December: Chaplaincy meeting Dec 17
There is a 6pm Student Mass weekly at St Philip Neri Church on Sundays.
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”
