Who are we?
The Krijtberg, Singel 446
The R.C. Student’s Union Thomas Aquinas is lead by a group of young people who met each other at the church The Krijtberg, in Amsterdam. This is the church of the Saint Franciscus Xaverius, which is lead by the Jesuits. The church is based in the center of Amsterdam, at the street called Singel, across the University Library.
The members of the Student Union are students from the University of Amsterdam, Free University (Vrije Universiteit) and the Business School of Amsterdam. The Governing Board of Thomas Aquinas consists of a President, a Secretary and a Treasurer.
The Board meets every fourteen days and most of the members are originally Roman Catholic. However, young people from other denominations are also member of our Student's Union. If you have any religious background at all and you are interested in the Catholic (or Christian) faith then you are most welcome to contact us.
If you would like to join for Holy Eucharist to find out more about the Roman Catholic Faith, please visit the sites of the following churches in Amsterdam:

You could also send an e-mail to info at thomasaquinas dot nl to make an appointment to celebrate the Holy Mass together with us. Besides, many of our members visit the Sunday afternoon Mass at 17.15 hours at the Krijtberg.
