The executive committee was elected last May. Currently it is composed of ten students, two of which are Student Representatives on the Faculty Board. The aim of the executive is to lead the association forward by creating a vibrant atmosphere to encourage theological dialogue between students on campus.
Originally the Royal University Students’ Theological Association, the Għaqda Studenti tat-Teoloġija was formally founded in 1945. However, recent research has shown that this Association was in fact a spin-off from an earlier society called ‘Ċirkolu ta’ Studju bejn l-Istudenti tal-Kors Akkademiku tat-Teoloġija’ whose first meeting was held on the 21st of December 1942 at St Joseph’s Institute at Ħamrun.
Għ.S.T. is the official student organisation of the Faculty of Theology, with the aim of creating a space where members get to know each other more and feel part of our university. The representation of its members with university authority and the help offered to students in theological, spiritual and intellectual formation, also through solidarity initiatives, is important to us.
The Għaqda Studenti tat-Teoloġija (Għ.S.T.) is organising a debate about the issue of same-sex couples within the broader horizon of what is meant by ‘a family’, as part of the Foundation Day celebrations on Friday 21st November at 19:15 at The Archbishop’s Seminary, ir-Rabat.
Another initiative be Ghst is, a project called Zuntier.com. The scope of zuntier.com is a very simple but at the same time very challenging. The website aims to bring together faith and reason in today’s world, particularly within campus life.
