Please don't forget that this coming Friday is Family Fast Day and to donate to CAFOD. I am speaking at one of the masses in my parish.

I'm okay! I think I like it here! I actually managed to get to mass as well so I got an envelope.

Hi everyone!

What's it like to be catholic at university? Is it acceptable? Do people just not care? Or is it like the horror stories I hear, of practically the best way to socially exclude yourself?

I had a fantastic time at uni.
No one I knew really cared about it. A few people made jokes, but all in a friendly way.
And the Catholic Society is a wonderful way to meet lovely people :yep:

I cannot wait!

I go to a "non-denominational" school in notoriously sectarian Scotland, so only my close friends even know I'm a catholic. I do express a belief in God to others, however, but being a catholic is the source of public joke. Many people whom I really get on with - some Christian - have made comments like "Ew, Catholics," "I hate Catholic people" and "The Orange Walk is just a celebration of our culture!"

It's terrible that people can be so bigoted

Maybe finally at university I can be openly Catholic!

Freshers week has just finished for me and it has been a little bit like that, but I went to the chaplaincy today and there is one guy in halls near me who is so catholic! and the others seem nice.

The feast of Blessed John Henry Newman is on Wednesday. On Sunday one of his hymns was our entrance hymn.

That is nice to hear Thankyouuu I guess I like it but it just feels like I'm talking to people but not really making friends... I'm sure it'll get better though.

Try not to pressure yourself into making friends quickly. Friends worth keeping will come to you in time and will make themselves known. I think there are few people who can claim by the end of their degree, to still be best buddies with the people they were hanging around with in Freshers' Week :hugs:
