Catholic? Going to University this year?

Make sure you look out for your Catholic Chaplaincy.
Most of our universities and higher education institutions have a dedicated Catholic chaplain based in the
university or local parish. The Catholic chaplaincy is a place to explore your faith as a young adult and to meet other
young people with similar interests from a range of backgrounds. To find your local chaplaincy and for contact details of all the university chaplains and Catholic student services, please visit:

Guardians of Ancora


Guardians of Ancora is a free faith based app based on a fictional world called Ancora.  It offers children a wonderful virual world to experience interactive Bible stories. Players can go on an exciting journey that will take them through the city. As they explore the stories of the Bible, they will hopefully find out for themselves who God is.

The app can be downloaded from the Appstore, Googleplay and Amazon. 

Youth 2000


Youth 2000 is an international Catholic movement for young people, generally between the ages of 16 and 35. At their retreats, which are between 2 and 5 days long, teens and adults alike share their love for Jesus through the Eucharist, adoration, and praise and worship. It has been active since at least 1991 in the UK. For more information click on: Youth 2000


Mother Mary


There are angels God puts on this Earth,
From the day you were born, 
The day of your birth.
As they walk through life beside us, 
They will always be there to guide us.
A treasure in all our hearts.
Mother of all mothers.


Aaliyah Adams, Dominika Biegun, Natalia Trzeciak


The Garden of Eden


When in the garden of troubled thought,
Look to God and hope to be taught.
If you’re lost and haven’t been found,
God is right with you, he is your ground.
When you’re drowning in your sins,
Pray to God; and life begins.
If you look the right way, you can see,
That the whole world is one beautiful garden,
The paradise lost and found.


Aaliyah Adams, Dominika Biegun, Natalia Trzeciak

Prayer to St Anthony


Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favour I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.
