The Cathsoc Year — Summer Term

[ International Masses | Trip to Cambridge | NOT The Union Ball | Going-down BBQ ]

International Masses

Hispanic Mass
Each year, 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!

Hispanic Lunch
In previous years, we celebrated African, French, German, Hispanic, Italian and Polish Masses and many more. We hope to repeat their success in the years to come.

Moreover, we encourage groups from all countries/regions/languages to join in and to show their commitment as well!

Char-à-banc to Cambridge

Punting on the Cam
Cambridge“The other place” (as they say in Oxford) — invites us each Summer Term to enjoy their hospitality. We go as guests of the Fisher Society (that is the Cathsoc equivalent at Cambridge University).

Although the day is free to explore by ourselves, we are welcome to visit their base at Fisher House, celebrate Mass, have a buffet lunch, and go punting on the Cam in the afternoon. All this, plus more bookshops & pubs than you can count, ensures an enjoyable and rewarding day away from the stress and strain of pending exams!

NOT the Union Ball...

Party Till Dawn
Our final chance to relax and party together. This is NOT the Union Ball — this is the Cathsoc!

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 £50 a ticket... Not at even 50p a ticket... BUT free!

Going-down Barbecue

Going-down BBQ
“All good things” — sadly — “come to an end”, and that is even true of the Cathsoc year. But if we have to end ... we end in style!

On our last Sunday of Summer Term we have our free Going-down Barbecue. Enjoying the ambiance of the garden at St John Stone House, we say (often with tears in our eyes) ‘au revoir’ to our friends and reflect on another wonderful Cathsoc year.

But we do so knowing that the friends and experiences of our time at the Cathsoc at Kent will remain with us for the rest of our lives...
