Charles Sturt University (CSU) is a big part of the community in Bathurst.

Chaplaincy at CSU has always played an important role in campus life. It holds a strong tradition of being a helpful partner in the university community aiming to:

  • provide support, encouragement and teaching to staff and students
  • allow opportunities for anyone, regardless of background, to explore and engage with Christian beliefs, including opportunities for respectful debate and dialogue between faiths and with respect to academic disciplines
  • be available to the CSU community for counselling and support of people from any background in times of stress or crisis

The Catholic Chaplain at CSU is Fr Diep Nguyen. To welcome students and staff to the Cathedral Parish, and help them to connect with other people exploring their faith, Fr Diep has introduced CSU Catholics. Every Thursday morning, students are invited to join with Fr Diep for a free coffee and a chat, the opportunity to discuss the scriptures, and regular opportunities for Mass. Or to check out Mass times in the Bathurst Cathedral Parish go here
