What’s Fisher House?

The Cambridge University Catholic Chaplaincy was founded in 1895, and has been at Fisher House since 1924. Centrally located, just off the Market Place, the Chaplaincy comprises a core of ancient buildings, a large and beautiful church recently refurbished, a spacious room for gatherings with a kitchen and bar, a well-stocked library, and a roof terrace.

As well as daily Mass, Fisher House hosts a wide range of activities, from discussion groups and lectures to social events.

Do feel free to speak to the chaplains at any time – our contact details are available on the website, or come and find us at Fisher House. The Chaplaincy is warm and hospitable, a place where your faith will be nourished, nurtured and encouraged. We look forward to seeing you.
