UCD chaplaincy creates space for students to nourish and nurture their spiritual lives and their faith.
We welcome all students to our beautiful contemplation room at the gable end of St. Stephen’s chaplaincy. It is open from 8am to 9pm daily, for anyone who would like to drop by, enjoy some quiet time, pray a little or just relax into a warm and welcoming devotional space.
The contemplation room not just a place of silence and solitude. It is also a place of prayer and worship.
- A student Mass takes place here every Sunday evening at 9pm with lovely music provided by our Notre Dame students.
- On Wednesday evenings, there is a Youth2000 prayer meeting organised by the Newman Society.
- Every Monday at 5pm, there is an Interfaith ‘devotional’ organised by the Baha’I Society.
An important part of our ‘contemplative outreach’ is the provision of retreat opportunities – time away to reflect on life’s challenges and struggles, space to come home to oneself, and find inner peace. There is an upcoming retreat in the magnificent surroundings of the Benedictine Monastery at Rostrevor, Co. Down, 10-12 March 2017. Booking through Newman Society.
