International Masses

During
Term
Each year during Spring Term and Summer Term, we share the Internationalism of the Catholic Church — and the Cathsoc at the University of Kent in particular — by celebrating our International Masses. On these Sundays, different ‘flavours’ transform our celebrations. The Mass, its songs, prayers and readings are all in a particular language; whilst our Pot-luck Lunch continues the same theme with a gourmet meal — with the best dish of that country/region prepared for us!

If you would like to help organising an International Mass, please contact Fr Peter as soon as possible. In previous years, we celebrated African, French, German, Hispanic, Italian and Polish Masses, and we hope to repeat their success in the years to come. Moreover, we also encourage groups from other countries/regions/languages to join in and to show their commitment as well!

Sophie Scholl — The Final Days

Tuesday
22 January
This German film was a nominee for the best foreign film Academy Award in 2006. A moving account of an idealistic student who was executed in 1943 for handing out anti-Nazi leaflets at the University of Munich. It is a demanding spectacle of profound moral courage, of a powerless good person in collision with absolute evil.
