Regional Meetings November 2017

Our regional meetings are a regular opportunity for Catholic Chaplains in universities to share their experience as chaplains, the activities which work and the challenges they face. They are a source of support and encouragement and sometimes inspiration. They are a chance to visit other chaplaincies and see how contexts vary and also opportunities to plan joint chaplaincy activities.  We meet twice a year The dates and times for regional meetings in the autumn term are listed below.

We gather from 10.30 to start at 11am and we finish by 3pm.

North West Chaplains: Friday 3rd November at Lancaster University Chaplaincy.

Midlands Chaplains Tuesday 7th November at Newman University Birmingham.

North East Chaplains Tuesday 21 November at Bede House, Newcastle.

South East Chaplains Thursday 23rd November at Newman House, Gower Street, London.

Chaplains in the South West and in Wales have an annual regional meeting in the Spring.

If chaplains cannot attend their own regional meeting, they are welcome to attend another.
