Presidents

Mario and Alex

Mario and Alex
Our Presidents this year are Mario Schweigler and Alex Ren. Both of them have been part of the Cathsoc Committee before, and pursued various functions within the Catholic Society, so it is not an ‘entirely new’ experience for them.

Mario comes from Germany. After his first three years of study there, he came to Kent and is currently in the final year of his PhD in Computer Science. Mario is also responsible for our website and plays the guitar in our choir.

Alex is Singaporean and currently in the second year of his degree in Politics and International Relations. Before he came to Kent, he served three years with the Singaporean Armed Forces. Additionally to his involvement with the Cathsoc, Alex is also this year’s Ethnic Minorities Officer of the Students’ Union.

Both of them also act as barmen of The Barque Inn, our Chaplaincy bar. So whenever you wonder where to buy your ale on a Tuesday night — you know who to ask...

Treasurer

Luisa

Luisa
Luisa Decuir, who comes from Mexico, is the Treasurer of the Cathsoc. She studied Economics and worked as a research and teaching assistant in Mexico. In 2000 she came to England to do a Master in Warwick, after which she came to Kent to start her PhD in Economics. At the moment, she is in her final year.

Luisa was one of the Cathsoc Presidents last year. She is part of our SVP Group where she helps the homeless at the Canterbury Open Centre. Lusia is very enthusiastic to leave her fingerprint at the Cathsoc in the second year now, and to spice up Cathsoc life with some Latin American flavour!

International Officer

Stefan

Stefan
This year’s International Officer is Stefan Krok-Paszkowski, called Krok by his friends. Stefan comes originally from Poland. He is doing a History degree and is currently in his second year. Before starting university, he served in the Armed Forces as a reserve.

Stefan has a distinct interest in scriptural theology and Doctrine. You might see him as a Eucharistic Minister, distributing the Chalice at mass. Although he has never been on the Cathsoc Committee before, Stefan is determined to do the best job he can and promises to be a fast learner.

Cultural Officer

Andrew

Andrew
The guy with the blue guitar is Andrew Capone, our Cultural Officer. You might get to know him as ‘Al Capone’, or as Indri, which is his Maltese name. Yes, he is originally Maltese, although he lived in England for most of his life. At the moment, he is in the final year of his degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies.

Andrew is one of the guitarists in our choir, so he is one of the people you can contact if you are interested in singing or playing an instrument in the choir. You can catch him right after Mass on Sundays, or at St John Stone House, where he is often behind the bar as our third bartender, on Sundays and Tuesdays.

SVP President

Charo

Charo
The President of our SVP Group is Rosario Domínguez, called Charo by her friends. She is about to finish her PhD in Medical Electronics. Charo comes from Mexico too. Along with Luisa, she was President of the Cathsoc last year. During that year they put lot of ‘sabor’ (Spanish for ‘taste’) into the Society, with genuine Mexican food as well as Latin music.

For the second year now, Charo is our SVP President. She believes that love, enthusiasm and energy can be shared with those in need. From her experience, she thinks that the SVP Group gives us the opportunity to share what we have and feel, and that helping others can let us grow as human beings and as Christians. “Let us plant the seed of sharing, and we will soon collect the fruit of love!”
