Founded in 2013 as the Studentenparochie St. Augustinus, we are the one and only Roman Catholic student parish in the city of Groningen. Officially, we are a parish and, as such, have a different organization than most other student organisations. Most importantly, we do not have any official members and, accordingly, there is no obligatory attendance or contribution fee. People participate in our activities on a voluntary basis.
Every month, and generally on Thursdays, St. Augustine organizes many different activities. Those that participate in our activities are a very divers group of people: students, PhD’s and young professionals of all around the world, including of course the Netherlands. Moreover, we are a very open group: it is not necessary for you to be a full-fledged Catholic to join our activities.
