The Belfast Chaplaincy team offer pastoral care, encouragement and support to all regardless of your faith. We work together to promote a welcoming and inclusive community that can contribute to every aspect of University life.

The Belfast Chaplaincy team work together to promote a welcoming, inclusive community offering pastoral and spiritual support and care to all students and staff regardless of your faith.

We are appointed by our denominations and the university to be available on campus to support the university community and are interested in all aspects of your university experience.

We hope that after a period of refurbishment, the Chaplaincy lounge will once again become a safe social space on campus for students and staff to meet, chat and unwind with some comfy seats and free tea/coffee.

Seminars and small group activities will also be held here.

In the interim, the Chaplains will be out and about on campus welcoming you into the new year with our smiles and Free Coffee and running our events in alternative spaces.

Our famous Free Lunch aka “Souper Tuesday” will return this year Tuesday 4th October 2022 at 12.30pm in St Anne’s Cathedral, Minor Hall (access to the right of the cathedral along Talbot Street)

Mass will be celebrated Mondays & Fridays at 12.20pm in Belfast Jesuit Centre (upstairs), Donegall Street.

Other events, programme activities and social action initiatives will be advertised in due course.

Look out for us during Freshers Week and for any emails we send out.

We invite you also to drop us an email to introduce yourself at the start of year.

You may have some questions or be finding the start of a new year in a new city challenging and would like a bit of company as you settle in.

We are always available to listen and to help and will try to connect you with other useful people and services too.
