Meet people, do stuff.

We are open to all students in the university interested in learning about Catholicism!

Membership to the society costs £5, which gives you a price reduction for specific events and allows you to vote in society meetings.

The society has very close ties with both the Catholic chaplaincy and the local parish church. The majority of its events are hosted at Canmore, the chaplaincy building. The chaplain, Fr Michael John Galbraith, is also the parish priest of the local parish.

The chaplaincy is open to all staff and students at the university and is under the pastoral care of the archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh. Our society is led by students and aims to promote the Catholic faith throughout the University and provide a social setting for Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

We attempt to achieve the first aim by inviting speakers to give talks on topics related to Catholicism. These talks are free to attend and are open to all who wish to listen. Past speakers have included Sir James MacMillan, Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP, Fr Christopher Jamison OSB, and Bishop Hugh Gilbert OSB, in addition to other less famous but equally insightful guests.

To achieve our second aim, we hope to work closely with the Catholic chaplaincy to create a community where everyone is welcomed and valued. We host weekly Sunday Suppers, cooked by a different team of volunteers each week, as well as a variety of other social events.


Memberships for 2024-25 will be available in September.
