University of Strathclyde Catholic Chaplaincy


The Dominican community in Glasgow has always had a number of strings to its bow, involved in many different pastoral and preaching works. The longest running of these commitments is our supply of a Catholic Chaplain to the University of Strathclyde. The University is in the very heart of Glasgow, Scotland's biggest city, and has a growing presence there, as well as having a campus at Jordanhill in the city's west end.

The Catholic Chaplain, currently Brendan Slevin OP, works in an ecumenical Chaplaincy Centre on John Street, with regular contributions from other Dominicans, and together with denominational chaplains from other communities - Church of Scotland, Episcopalian, Baptist, Methodist, Free Church and Jewish. The celebration of daily Mass, Monday to Friday during term-time and weekend Masses at St Columba's, forms the heart of the life of the Catholic Parish of the University, but other liturgical events are offered too.
