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!

St John Stone
Dear Friends and Members of the Catholic Society,

Welcome to! This website is very much for you, and for all those who are interested in the life of the Cathsoc.

For those who don't know (yet) who we are - "Cathsoc is the biggest and best society on campus...", so wrote KRED, the student newspaper, about us in March 2000. Although some time has passed since then, this is still very true. We are open for anyone who wants to join us, and we have the most wide-ranging programme of all societies on campus. And the best of all - Cathsoc membership is entirely free!

Remember our slogan: "Come when you can... Go when you want..."

God bless,
The Cathsoc Committee and Chaplain
