Our Mission:


The Aquinas Institute, Princeton University’s Catholic Campus Ministry, seeks to help students have confidence in knowing and living their Catholic faith by integrating spiritual, social, and academic aspects of their college life in a faithful Catholic community. By encountering Christ and His Church during these precious years on campus, students are better enabled to realize their full potential in the university and the world with a faith that is known, loved, and lived. 


Our Students

The students in the Aquinas community come from all over the country and the world to create a warm and welcoming fellowship where you will find many new friends to accompany you on the journey toward deeper faith and holiness.
