CathSoc Night is the main mid-week student gathering at the Chaplaincy, taking place each Wednesday after the 7:00pm Mass (so at about 7:30pm). We gather for a shared meal, talk/discussion (at about 8:00pm), and then conclude with prayer (at about 9:00pm). You are very welcome to come along for as little or as much of the evening as you like, and it is not unheard of for discussions to continue afterward in a local hostelry!
Wednesday 4 May is the Feast of the English Martyrs; as a one-off our usual simple sung Mass will be celebrated this week in Latin (“new” rite, with readings and homily in English, of course!).
We are then pleased to welcome Fr Philip Rosario OSB who will speak to us on Benedictine Spirituality. Fr Philip is a monk of Ampleforth Abbey, where he is Master of Oblates – i.e. those lay people who have promised to live according to the principles of Benedictine Spirituality in their daily lives, linking themselves spiritually to the monks of Ampleforth.
The evening will conclude with the celebration of Compline, the Church’s Night Prayer.
