"Do this in memory of me." - (Luke: 22:19) Everyday students, faculty, staff and locals have the opportunity to stop and give thanks to God in the most perfect way possible. There is no better way to grow closer to Jesus than by spending time with Him in silence, being forgiven of sins or feasting at Mass.
Mass Schedule During the Academic Year Sunday 4:30 pm University Chapel Sunday 10:05 pm Murray Dodge Hall Monday-Friday at 12 noon University Chapel
Serving others is one of the pillars of our faith. In Mother Teresa's wisdom, "We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." Here at Aquinas, we strive to serve those in need in the Princeton community.
Loaves and Fishes
Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen serves hundreds of Trenton's hungry and homeless with hot food and drink. The soup kitchen features restaurant style service, where clients sit down and are served by volunteers, unlike other soup kitchens where food is dispensed in a cafeteria-like line. Aquinas provides interested students transportation to and from Trenton in order to help serve meals.
Students gather to volunteer at a farm four miles off campus (we go once a month). It is owned by a retired Princeton professor, Bob, and his wife Caroline. Tasks include weeding, harvesting, digging beds, shoveling manure, and tending to the chickens, cows, and goats. Please contact Kyle Lang for more information or to sign up!

Graduate Student Fellowship
Every Thursday night 6-8 pm
@the Aquinas House
Come and join a strong Catholic community based on prayer, fellowship, and discussion of a wide variety of Catholic topics and literature. The goal of Graduate Fellowship is to learn about our Catholic faith and how it fits into our own lives, our society, and the world at large. Our group is constituted of graduate students and Princeton locals that meet every Thursday at the Aquinas Center (24 Charlton St.) from 6 to 8 pm. Your are welcome to come join us and enjoy some food and prayer anytime you like! For more information please contact Francisco J. Carrillo (email@example.com) or John Tracey (jt16@exchange.Princeton.EDU).
St. Augustine said, "Those who sing pray twice." In service to the community, the Aquinas Choir provides music for the 4:30 mass every Sunday. We explore all facets of the expansive Church musical tradition, learning everything from Latin Motets to contemporary hymn arrangements. Our choir consists of everyone from Westminster star students to those who have never sung in public. We practice for the hour before mass in the Chapel crypt. All are welcome to join. For more information, please email Don Carolina, the Director of the choir.
Breaking out of the Orange Bubble is a great way to appreciate all that you have, while seeing how God is working in your everyday life. At Aquinas, we make time for rest, prayer, and friendship on weekend retreats.
If you would are interested in more information about upcoming retreats, please contact Gabriela Vogeley, our Ministry Team Leader.
