St. Thomas More Society (Pritzker)
Welcome! In conjunction with the Sheil Catholic Center's Chicago campus, the St. Thomas More Society is Northwestern Law's Catholic student organization which aims to foster community, education, and service in the Catholic tradition among Northwestern Law students. We look forward to journeying with you during your time at Northwestern University.
We gather for weekly Mass and social activities, in addition to special lectures and other events. Check out our Catholic Chicago campus page here or register for weekly updates here.
