- St Benedict

A warm welcome awaits you at the Catholic Chaplaincy!


We are based in the heart of Liverpool at St Philip Neri Church in Catharine Street and are here to support students and staff of John Moores University, the University of Liverpool, and the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts on their journey of faith. 

During the current Coronavirus pandemic, our events and services will be rather different from usual - please consult the St Philip Neri Facebook page and - for students - the CathSoc Liverpool Facebook group for details. From the end of September the weekly newsletter will be available on the "Mass Times & Newsletter" page.


Sunday and weekday Masses are currently very much on an ad hoc basis, depending on the changing situation & Guidelines, and the availability of stewards. check the st philip neri facebook page for the most up to date info.

In the Meantime, find details of local masses  here: ​liverpoolcatholic.org.uk

From faith deepening sessions, through day trips to social events! So have a look what's on and don't miss out!
