Catholic Chaplaincy

Catholic Chaplaincy

The Catholic Church was founded 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ called together the community of the Apostles, with St Peter as their head.

Today, the Catholic Church is spread throughout the world, and includes all those Christians who are in full communion with the Bishop of Rome (the Pope) who Catholics see as the successor of St Peter. The Faith is based around the seven sacraments, with the Mass (Eucharist) understood as the summit and source of the Christian life.

Boniface House

The Catholic Chaplaincy base at the University is Boniface House, but due to the current Covid-19 regulations and social distancing rules we cannot reopen this building for Holy Mass and face-to-face events for the time being.

However, there are still numerous ways to get involved with Chaplaincy life and we will continue to offer spiritual support to students throughout this period. Most things will be taking place online and we hope that this will give you the opportunity to 'meet' some of the wonderful people who form part of the Chaplaincy community.

Local Churches

As the Chaplaincy cannot reopen for Mass, we encourage students to use one of the local parishes. Here in Exeter we have two Catholic Churches: Sacred Heart which is in South Street in the city centre, and Blessed Sacrament in Heavitree Road, near St Luke's campus.
