Meet the Chaplain

(Below you find the calendar of activities.)

The University Roman Catholic Chaplaincy in Amsterdam is an initiative of the Haarlem-Amsterdam Diocese. The Chaplaincy works on the UvA, VU, AUC and HBO campuses to provide community resources, pastoral counselling and fellowship to students, faculty and staff.

The Chaplain provides sacramental and formational services for all interested. In addition to these services, he works in conjunction with the Amsterdam Roman Catholic Communities and Parishes to put on a variety of events such as social nights, retreats, reconciliation services and speakers. The Chaplain works at Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk. Weekday masses are provided here. A Sunday Mass in English is celebrated at 6 PM at the Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk.

Fr William Veth

Fr. William Veth studied History of Art and Archeology at the University of Amsterdam. He had a professional career as an IT consultant, and studied Theology in Rome, and concluded his studies with a doctorate in Church History. He works at the Church of Our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk). Fr. William is a priest of the Roman Catholic Prelature of Opus Dei.

You can reach him by phone or mail (see below) for any matter or make an appointment at the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk.

The Church, militant or triumphant, it's all one; you and I are part of its organization, contribute, each of us, to the unity of the whole. We're not isolated units, like pebbles...we're living stones, each of us occupying an appointed place in the divine scheme of architecture.

Tengevolge hiervan trokken velen van zijn leerlingen zich terug en verlieten zijn gezelschap. Waarop Jezus aan de twaalf vroeg: Wilt ook gij soms weggaan? Simon Petrus antwoordde Hem: Heer, naar wie zouden wij gaan? Uw woorden zijn woorden van eeuwig leven https://rkbijbel.nl/kbs/bijbel/willibrord1975/neovulgaat/johannes/6 …

It takes effort to always do good… The road to holiness is not for the lazy!
