The University Chaplaincy

We provide the Catholic Chaplaincy Service for both De Montfort University and the University of Leicester.  For more information see the dedicated website for the Chaplaincy.

The Chaplaincy is an apostolate of Holy Cross Priory, Wellington Street, Leicester. Holy Cross is home to a community of Dominican Friars who serve the Church, the Parish and the Chaplaincy.

This website will provide news of events and services through term time, together with resources to help us grow together in the Faith.

Fr David Rocks OP is the Catholic Chaplain to both universities in Leicester. He is assisted by Fr Gregory Murphy OP and Ms Melony Kong.
