            Annual  Conference of Catholic Chaplains in Higher Education 12-14 June 2017

Theme: Amoris Laetitia: Life, Love and Creation.

We will be looking at the theological background and the teaching in Amoris Laetitia and how we may explore these  themes and those in Laudato Si with university students.
How can we live Catholic life with integrity and respect in our relationships and for the natural world. 

Regional Chaplains Meetings March 2017

Regional meetings are a valuable opportunity to share our experience. They help us to understand the particular contexts in which we work and the wider context of the changing higher education world and the challenges these changes bring.

Chaplains who are unable to attend their regional meeting or who have easier access to another are welcome to attend meetings outside their region - but please let the National Coordinator know you plan to attend.
