Dominican at the Edinburgh Chaplaincy
The Dominican Order was invited to Edinburgh in 1931 to offer pastoral care to the staff and students of the University of Edinburgh and, soon afterwards, Edinburgh College of Art. For nearly 80 years we have been a spiritual home for young people as they prepare for their future. Along with staff of both University and College we have also been a vibrant Catholic voice in the academic life of the city.
The central location of the Chaplaincy, the large number of students who use our services, the equally large supportive community who adopt us as their parish and the active commitment of the Dominican Order have all helped to make the Chaplaincy a lively centre of Catholic life in Edinburgh.
We have recently extended our outreach to include the students of Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University. This has significantly increased the already wide range of subjects and courses that our students are following, and brought the total student population that we serve to around 46,000.
