What We Do


Welcome! This is the homepage of the University of Bath's Catholic Society (CathSoc).


We are a friendly group of students who share the Catholic faith and like to meet regularly to have a meal together, to participate to faith-related events or just to socialise :)


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


Some of the things we did over the past year include:
- Cultural food nights!

- Faith retreats organised by Bath University Catholic 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 you are interested in Chaplaincy services (such as Holy Mass, Confession etc), please do not hesitate to keep in touch with Father Bill O.S.M. (the University Catholic Chaplain. See contacts below). He is very friendly and always happy to be contacted personally for any question/issue you might have.


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