We are very excited to share our new website with you! Created in partnership with Peter’s House, our website now brings together all the Catholic communities of York, including St Wilfrid's, St Joseph's, St Margaret Clitherow's Shrine, and More House University Catholic Chaplaincy. With all our communities under one digital roof, we hope that even more people will discover Catholic York.

This website was commissioned by the Fathers and Brothers of the York Oratory. Our mission is to accompany the people of York to the truth of the Catholic faith and into personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We hope that this website will act as a pathway for more people to become a part of our community, to receive from our ministries and to come to know Jesus.

Get Involved

Are you looking for a community to deepen your faith with, or for a way to serve? Our ‘Get Involved’ pages offer clear access to all our groups, from The Newman group to the bellringers, and from The Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) to our Gregorian Chant Schola!

Newcomers can also explore how to become Catholic and those discerning can explore their vocation.
