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!
Register with us online for regular news and updates on the things you are interested in!

FREE Toasties in Term-time!
Come along to the Chaplaincy for lunch during the week because it's on us! Enjoy a toastie with your choice of filling and stock up on free tea & coffee, biscuits and Wi-Fi. It's a great chance to meet new people and be part of our student community here. We hope to see you soon!
NEWS & EVENTS
Join us on weekday mornings at 8.30am for Morning Prayer in the Chapel. We pray the Divine Office for around 15-20 minutes with our Jesuit Community, so you can still make it on time to your 9.00am lectures! If you're free afterwards we would love you to join us for a cup of tea and a bowl of porridge, and of course a good chat!. We hope you can make it along.
If you would like to know more please speak to Stephanie or one of the Chaplaincy team.
