First Mass of Term — Ascension Day [Holy Day of Obligation]

Sunday
04 May
By decision of the Bishops of England and Wales, Ascension Day is now celebrated on the Sunday following the actual date (which would have been Thursday 1st May). Therefore, we will celebrate this Holy Day during our first Mass of term at 11:30am at the Franciscan International Study Centre followed by our Pot-luck Lunch at St John Stone House.

New Term... New Programme...

Tuesday

Meet up with old (and new) friends as we enjoy a Free Wine & Cheese Evening at St John Stone House around The Barque Inn.

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!

Pentecost Sunday

Sunday
11 May
As usual on Sundays, our Mass is at 11:30 at the Franciscan Centre, followed by our Pot-luck Lunch at St John Stone House.

Chill Out in Front of the Video...

Tuesday

An opportunity to recover around The Barque Inn as we watch “Romero” — the dramatic story of the life and martyrdom of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador.

Char-à-banc to Cambridge

Saturday
24 May
For only £15 — Forget (?) about that revision and those examinations — enjoy a “Panic & Stress Free Day” as guests of Cambridge University Catholic Society!

Visit the colleges... Stroll along the banks of (or punt on!) the Cam... Or just get away from it all...

Corpus Christi [Holy Day of Obligation]

Sunday
25 May
By decision of the Bishops of England and Wales, Corpus Christi is now celebrated on the Sunday following the actual date (which would have been Thursday 22nd May). Therefore, we will celebrate this Holy Day during our usual Sunday Mass at 11:30am at the Franciscan International Study Centre followed by our Pot-luck Lunch at St John Stone House.

Another Chance to Relax...

Tuesday
27 May
We are showing “Becket” — one of the great historical epics, which features one of cinema’s most legendary pairings; Peter O’Toole and Richard Burton. The story tells of the tempestuous friendship between King Henry II and Thomas Becket.

The King appoints his trusted companion to the esteemed position of Archbishop of Canterbury, believing his loyalty will give him control over the church. However, Becket takes his new duties seriously and his devotion to God soon brings him into direct conflict with the State and his lifelong friend. (Don’t forget the popcorn!)

NOT the Union Ball...

Tuesday
03 June
Enjoy the music of world famous bands (on CD). Feast on Internationally renowned cuisine (from the local take-away). Dance till dawn and romantically watch the sun rise (over the garden fence).

All this... and more... “From Eight till (very!) late...” Not at £45 a ticket... Not at even 45p a ticket... BUT free!

Our Last Mass of Term

Sunday
08 June
(Sadly) at 11:30 our last Mass of term followed by our famous Going-down Barbecue — our final Pot-luck Lunch with all the special atmosphere of St John Stone House and the end of a wonderful academic year!

Vive Valeque Cathsoc...

Tuesday
10 June
Our last Cathsoc meeting of this academic year. A chance to say ‘au revoir’ or ‘farewell’ and reminisce over the year gone by...
