Catholic Student Community

At Saint Thomas Aquinas Church and Catholic Student Center, we are GATHERED in the Holy Spirit, a diverse and vibrant community, TRANSFORMED by Jesus Christ in the Catholic Traditions, and SENT to be the presence of God in Ames, Iowa State University, and the world. We create opportunities for students to enter into Christian community through social interaction. Our primary focus is to learn about the message of the Gospel and gain encouragement to live the message.
