What is it about stories? Why are they so easy to listen to? Why are lectures so... not... sometimes... ?

We haven't got answer for those, but stories have been big in the Christian community since the early days. From Jesus telling parables to the testimony of early Christians, true testimonies shared have always been a powerful way of introducing people to the Christian faith.

I attended all the CathSoc (Catholic Society) events, was open with my flatmates about my faith, stayed in touch with my Catholic friends

Uni is often described a time of self-discovery, where you find out who you really are. And for many of us, our Catholic faith is an integral part of our identity. Uni is the perfect time to explore our faith, and to make it our own! With second term of uni now underway, we asked some of our friends to share their experience of being a Catholic
