Story

The Newman Society is Oxford's oldest Catholic institution and one of the oldest student societies in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1878 as the University Catholic Club, the name was changed to 'The Newman Society' ten years later, thanks to the gracious permission of St John Henry himself.

Ever since, the Society has strived, through our range of speakers and social events, to support the faith of the University's Catholic students by providing a thriving and vibrant community. It works hard to encourage them in their Christian vocation by promoting their personal, intellectual and spiritual development, social interaction, and apostolic witness.

Unfortunately, however, the current pandemic has meant the loss of a large amount of the Society's annual income. Without this necessary financial support, we will be unable to run many of our activities and events in the forthcoming academic year.

We don't charge for our talks, because it is important that they are accessible to all, whether Catholic or just interested, but our guest speakers still incur expenses including travel and accommodation costs. We also won't be able to cover our termly dinners and social events, which forge friendship and fellowship grounded in faith and fun. And importantly, we will lack proper musical accompaniment for the major Masses we hold each year.

We therefore invite you to make a donation to our appeal to help this vital work. We are extremely grateful for your generosity and have organised for a Mass to be offered once a month for the intentions of our benefactors. Please be assured of our continuing prayers during these difficult months.

Find out more about the Society on our website, or follow us on Facebook. Our weekly talks are broadcast live on our YouTube channel every Thursday at 8pm BST.
