The Catholic Student Chaplaincy in Amsterdam

Meet the Chaplain

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 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 Prelature of Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church.

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