Welcome to the Manchester Universities Catholic Chaplaincy (MUSCC)
We are situated in Avila House (opposite the UoM Student Union) and next to The Holy Name Church on Oxford Road. Open during the week from 10.00am until 8.00pm, pop in for free toast in the morning, and tea/coffee/biscuits all day long. You are welcome to use our library (one of the best kept secrets in Manchester), with free WiFi! Or you can just relax in front of the telly, or play pool and table football. We have a beautiful and peaceful chapel, plus, next door, the largest church in Manchester! Masses are twice a day in term time.
We have loads of groups and activities to get involved in, a vibrant international community, and friends you will keep!
