University of Southampton Chaplaincy

The Verbum Dei community have been involved with the chaplaincies in Southampton since 1995, taking up various roles in both University of Southampton Chaplaincy (find us on Facebook) and Southampton Solent University.

Our Chaplaincy is a multi-faith Chaplaincy, so apart from working alongside with the Catholic Society on campus we also organize interfaith activities in the Chaplaincy. Currently we work with other Christian Chaplain in both universities as well as with faith advisors from 5 other religions.

We also offer spiritual guidance for those who need it or a listening ear to anyone who hold another particular faith background or none. We welcome any young adults who wants to grow in faith or deepen their spirituality.
