Fr Rod Jones

Fr Rod Jones is the Catholic Chaplain to Sussex University. He is based at the Meeting House on campus and in Howard House, opposite Falmer Station. He is a monk of Worth Abbey, a Benedictine monastic community based 40 minutes North of Brighton. Fr Rod was once an architecture student at Brighton University, and it was through the Chaplaincy that he discovered his monastic call. He loves Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club so is thrilled to be working a stone’s throw from the stadium!
