University Chaplaincy

The University Chaplaincy is an integral part of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of Pázmány Péter Catholic University. Its activities may be divided into two large areas: our regular weekly programs and our annual special events. The Christian Student Circle (Szósz) is a group of volunteers under the auspices of the Chaplaincy. Members meet each week and organise a number of events open to all students.

One of our annually held events is "Route 56", a youth pilgrimage held as a commemoration of the events of 23rd October 1956. Participants walk from Csobánka to Esztergom at night. During Advent, we organise a gift pack collection, gifts are sent to orphanages in Transcarpathia, Transylvania and the Bacska region of Serbia.

Students may participate in the Tuesday evening meetings organised by Father Feri Pál, join the different self-knowledge and skills-developing groups, take part in the devotion circle or charity work.

Confirmation or preparation for marriage in small groups is also available.

With the help of our professional colleagues, we offer pastoral care in topics concerning conduct and religious life, improvement of spiritual, mental and physical well-being, and cultivation of human relations.
