Welcome to Liverpool and to our 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.
If you are coming to Liverpool this year a warm welcome awaits you at the Catholic Chaplaincy. Watch out for our stall at the University of Liverpool Fresher's Fair on Thursday 22nd & Friday 23rd September, and at the John Moores University Student's Union Welcome Fair on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th September.
Start of Year Welcome Barbeque after 6pm Mass on Sunday 1st October.
There is a 6pm Student Mass weekly at St Philip Neri Church.
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”
