We're here for you on campus.
Have you just left Year 12 or been studying here for ages?
Well, we just want to say ‘hey, we’re here!’ So when you’re tired and need to rest or to chat, drink coffee or go to mass, find us down at the Chaplaincy Centre. We have a coffee machine and an Filipino priest so you can’t go wrong.
Who are we?
We are the UQ Catholic Chaplaincy, part of the bigger UQ Multi-Faith Chaplaincy. We operate within the University of Queensland, aiming to provide students and staff with a community to belong to, and a way to explore their faith. Our office is located in Building 38, behind the Abel Smith Lecture Theatre, and our office is open Tuesday to Friday every week.
Meet the Team
Introducing the FX Mission Team
The FX Mission Team is a group of young adult missionaries who work full time at the University of Queensland Catholic Chaplaincy. The FX Mission Team is the University arm of NET Ministries Australia, and the "FX" in our name stands for Francis Xavier, a Saint who is known as one of the greatest missionaries of all time.
They are all full time volunteers, and have come from all around the world to serve at this University this year.
