Bereavement in isolation
During this time of crisis we are facing the tragic loss of life in very difficult and unprecedented circumstances.
and we are conscious that bereaved people may have to deal with increased trauma and may be cut off from their usual support networks. Members of the Chaplaincy Team are here to offer support, guidance and prayer to those experiencing bereavement. Do be in touch with us via our chaplaincy email and if you can, mark the subject 'bereavement': Chaplaincy@roehampton.ac.uk

The Digby Stuart Chaplain works within the College and with other areas of the University to support the personal, professional, spiritual and intellectual development of those who live and work here. The College Chaplain operates as part of the University Multifaith Chaplaincy Team. The College Chapels are the focus for Catholic worship at Roehampton, while the whole Chaplaincy Team supports ecumenical worship and activities across faiths.
In the college we provide an area for meetings, relaxation, and small social events and activities. It is located on the ground floor of Erasmus House and is known as the Base. You will find social gatherings such as Monday community lunches and Sunday evening catch ups held here. The College also runs the Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS), which is validated by the Board of Studies of the Bishop's Conference of England and Wales.
