Rebuilding St John Stone House
In September 2014, St John Stone House was
severely damaged by fire and the building was destroyed. The building of a
completely new Catholic Chaplaincy is proceeding but has taken longer than
originally expected. We will regularly keep you posted of progress via
pictures on this website.
Sadly, in the summer of 2017, the Franciscan
International Study Centre in Giles Lane, where we were temporarily having
all our activities, has closed. It is hoped that the new St John Stone House
will be completed by Christmas.
This means that during the Autumn Term of
2017, our Sunday Mass will be at 6pm in the
Eliot College Chapel, followed by
refreshments. It is here, also, that we will have Mass at 7.00pm on Tuesday
evenings followed by our Cathsoc meeting. Our Thursday Mass at 1:30pm
— which was always in the Eliot Chapel — will continue as normal.
As construction progresses, we will let you know how you can make a contribution
to our new Chaplaincy, which will, once again, become a new vibrant centre for
Catholic life on campus and beyond for the coming years and decades!

of all societies on campus. And the best of all — Cathsoc membership is entirely
