The Catholic Students’ Union brings like-minded students together who can express and discuss their Catholic faith. We help to provide opportunities for deepening the understanding of our Catholic faith and to facilitate social events for our members.
We are based at George Square Campus as part of the St. Albert’s Catholic Chaplaincy, 23 George Square. Truly a home away from home, the Chaplaincy’s common room is stocked with plenty of tea, coffee and access onto the university WiFi. It often becomes a busy meeting place for students with numerous weekly events during the semester, such as daily lunchtime Mass, Midweek Meals, Young Women’s Fellowship, the CSU has always something going on!
The Chaplaincy is part of the Parish of St Albert the Great; a Dominican Priory. The friars bring their tradition of religious life to their care for students and staff at the University and are available for a chat or to give advice throughout the week, as well as to celebrate the Sacraments.
Like any good student society and in keeping with the Catholic spirit, we enjoy food and drink: lunches, barbecues and evening meals. We also organise three black tie events throughout the year (St. Andrew’s Night, Burns Night and May Ball) which include three-course meals, ceilidhs and evening entertainment.
In the Chapel, the Sunday Student Mass brings us together in prayer and worship. We also have an active choir group, which meets during the week and before Mass on Sunday; we heartily welcome new members! Once a month we organise a Praise & Worship Adoration evening which is led by a sung worship ministry. Each semester we go on a weekend retreat where we learn more about our faith, spend time in front of the Eucharist, and get to know each other through group discussions and games.
