Chaplaincy Table Talks

Every fourth and fifth Sunday of the month, after Mass at 5 p.m., we meet at the University Chaplaincy to learn and talk about topics related to (Catholic) faith and/or the (Catholic) Church. Both students and staff are welcome. You are free to join us once or come more often. Before the ‘table talk’ begins, we share a picnic in the University Chaplaincy’s living room.

Led by university chaplain Joseph Geelen.


Lenten meal

During Lent, the University Chaplaincy organises a Lenten meal every Thursday. This consists of eating a simple meal in silence, followed by a moment of sharing (listening to personal stories or a guest speaker). There is also a collection at the end of the meal: the total amount collected is donated to a charity chosen by the group.

Led by university chaplain Joseph Geelen.


Monday to Thursday: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Friday: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
