The Covid-19 pandemic has prevented the opening of the chaplaincy building for the start of this semester, but the chaplaincy team is still here to offer support and pastoral care, spiritual guidance and the sacraments, and a range of other opportunities:
Tuesdays 7pm: Talk Night A weekly talk from an invited speaker on a theme of faith, with time for questions. This term’s talks will take place on Zoom. Full programme TBA. See our private Facebook group MUSCC Community for the link or contact us on Facebook, Twitter or by email aperez[at]jesuit.org.uk
Wednesdays 7pm, beginning on 28th October. RCIA for those who want to learn more about the Catholic faith in preparation for becoming a Catholic, or for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Contact Fr Peter pscallysj[at]jesuit.org.uk for more information.
Monthly: Postgraduate group (currently over Zoom, and arranged via postgrad WhatsApp group)

Every first Friday of the Month . . .
...during term time....
A very gentle way of evangelisation...
The church remains open from 7:30pm - 10pm, bathed in just candlelight. On the altar is the exposed Blessed Sacrament. Live music is softly played in the background.
Our volunteers are outside, in pairs, just inviting passers by to come in and light a candle. The response to the invitation varies, but a surprising amount of people come in.
No hard sell, no twisting arms, no guilt trips - just beauty, candles and grace.
