What We Do

CathSoc is a vibrant society open to everyone, whether you're Catholic or not, undergrad or PhD student, you're very welcome to join us! :)

We are a friendly group of students who meet often to socialise, have a meal together, participate to faith-related and so on. Some of the things we did over the past years include:

  • Cultural food nights!
  • Faith retreats organised by Bath Catholic University Chaplaincy.
  • Debates on themes such as abortion...
  • We played games together, watched movies, organised trips, and did much more (check out our gallery)!

Catholic Chaplaincy Services

If you're not thinking to join CathSoc but are interested in Catholic Chaplaincy services (such as Holy Mass, Confession etc) please do not hesitate to email Father Bill O.S.M. (Catholic University Chaplain, see contacts below). He is very friendly and always happy to be contacted personally for any questions/issues you might have.

Holy Mass on Campus, celebrated by Father Bill O.S.M. is at 12:30pm during term time in the ECC.

CathSoc Membership

CathSoc membership is not compulsory to enjoy our events. You can still participate to most events, however, your membership will help us with costs for our events (food nights etc.) and will also help us fulfil our requirements as a Students' Union society.

As a member you get discounts whenever a payment is required for special events, moreover you get a chance to buy a CathSoc hoodie (ask the committee for this). Membership is only £5 and you'll get the value of your money back quickly!
