What We Do

We host loads of different events (including socials, cultural food nights, faith retreats, game nights, trips...) which are all open to everyone (whether or not Catholic, Christian or religious at all, undergrad or PhD student). Everyone's welcome any time throughout the year! :)

CathSoc Membership

Membership is not compulsory to enjoy our events. You can still participate to most events, however, as a member you get discounts to ticked events, moreover you get a chance to buy a CathSoc hoodie (ask the committee for this). Your membership will directly fund our events (e.g. food nights etc.), it's only £5 and you'll get the value of your money quickly back!
