There are two chaplains at Newman House, who work on campus at the University

Fr Stefan Laszczyk

Eventually there will be a picture here, Fr Stefan is renowned for hating his picture being taken!!

Fr Stefan is a Secular (Diocesan) Priest. He is proud of being a Brummie! He went to Leeds University for his BSc. Then he was ordained on 21st June 1997 (It means he is 20 years in 2017!), after 6 years at St Mary’s College, Oscott. His passions (Other than the Lord of course) are Computers and Sci-Fi/ Fantasy Genre Books. Rule of thumb unless you are really interested do not get him started on World of Warcraft!
