GUCA is one of GU’s top student societies, and we are among the biggest and best Catholic Associations in the UK
There are plenty of ways to be involved with your Faith at Glasgow University. GUCA is one of GU’s top student societies, and we are among the biggest and best Catholic Associations in the UK.
Much of our activity centres around our main groups: CathSoc lectures and discussions; the Society of St Vincent de Paul for charitable works; the Legion of Mary Praesidium for evangelisation and apostolic activity; the St Margaret’s Guild for discussion, and sisterhood; and the Knights of St Columba, a men’s confraternity for charitable service, fellowship, and the promotion of the faith.
In addition to this, we also have much, much more going on, including high-profile social events throughout the year. Feel free to get involved- in any capacity that you wish- and you’ll be made to feel welcome. Embracing a strong and positive community of other young Catholics when you’re a student is something that can give you a solid foundation for life.
So, get in touch, either through Facebook, Twitter (@GUCatholic) or Instagram (gucatholicassociation), or popping in and speaking to someone personally. GUCA is based at the Catholic Chaplaincy, right in the middle of campus at Turnbull Hall, 13/15 Southpark Terrace (about halfway between the University library and Stevenson Building).
Our chaplain is Fr Ross Campbell, ordained for the Archdiocese of Glasgow in June 2010 and appointed as University Catholic Chaplain in March 2014.
