Catholic university chaplaincy is a place for you to explore your faith as a young adult, to meet other young people with similar interests from a great range of backgrounds, and to get involved in activities and social outreach.
The main Catholic Chaplaincy Centre is at the chapel of Our Lady of Seat of Wisdom, University of Peradeniya, University Park.
If you already have a strong faith, this is a chance to deepen it. If you are full of questions and doubts, this is a chance to share them and search for some honest answers about life and faith. Everyone is welcome. Don’t be shy. Come and visit us at the chapel of Our Lady of Seat of Wisdom, University of Peradeniya, University Park.
The chapel of Our Lady of Seat of Wisdom is a home for all Catholics who belong to the University of Peradeniya and for all those who are seeking to grow closer to Christ and his Church. It is a place where faith is deepened and friendships are formed, so that we can witness to our faith through lives of love, joy, generosity, service and a commitment to evangelization.
We hope that everyone will feel welcome here at the Chaplaincy. The Church is your home, your family – whatever your nationality, language, ethnicity, age or background; whatever your education or qualifications or career; whatever your politics or personal opinions; whatever your family situation or marital status or sexual orientation; whatever your faith or doubts or questions or struggles. The Chaplaincy is a place where each person can be loved and accepted for who they are; and where each person can grow in the love of God. Let us pray that each one of us – students, university staff, and chaplains – can play our part in building a community of love and mercy, and sharing this with others.
Particularly outside of term time, it is wise to get in touch with the Chaplain beforehand to check if the Mass is taking place.
