About us

The Priory of the Holy Cross is home to a large parish in the city centre, and serve a Mass station at the village of Woodhouse in a 14th-century chapel. We are responsible for the chaplaincies to two universities, the University of Leicester and De Montfort University, and provide chaplaincy ministry to the Leicester Royal Infirmary (see Chaplaincies page). The friars also undertake wider apostolates of preaching and teaching across the country, including at seminaries and institutes of higher learning, such as Blackfriars, Oxford.
