University Chaplaincy & Leicester Catholic Students

We provide Catholic Chaplaincy services to both De Montfort University and the University of Leicester. Fr David Rocks OP is the Catholic Chaplain to both universities in Leicester. He is assisted by Fr Matthew Jarvis OP, who is the Chaplain to Leicester Catholic Students.

Leicester Catholic Students is a hub for students from both universities to make new friends, find out more about Catholicism, and put faith and prayer into action. Whether a lifelong Catholic or someone just looking to find out more, our door is always open to new members.

There is a wide range of events throughout the year, from talks to socials and prayer events. Students gather at various Sunday Masses at Holy Cross Priory Church.

Many of our events take place at Holy Cross, but we also work with the Catholic Societies (CathSocs) at both universities to host events on campus, including regular Mass on campus: normally Tuesdays 12.15pm at UoL Gatehouse Chaplaincy building, and Wednesdays 3pm at DMU Chaplaincy, Portland building.
