St Cuthbert's Society, Ushaw

Originally founded on the 19th July 1854, the society had only one purpose; to support the college in its mission to train men for the catholic priesthood. St Cuthbert’s society continues to this day, and all those who have a special place in their heart for Ushaw are encouraged to apply for membership and further the development of our beautiful and historic college. Ushaw remains grateful for the support it receives from the St Cuthbert's Society to this day.
