The Catholic Chaplaincy is a community that welcomes, supports and unconditionally accepts students and staff from Brighton and Sussex Universities, and provides a background of support for those who wish to share, explore and perhaps find anew their spiritual journey.

Howard House provides a base for the chaplaincy and is located opposite Falmer Station (BN1 9SD). As well as being a home to Fr Paul and 7 students, there is a common room, library and kitchen for the use of all.
