In the seventies of the past century, the Krijtberg parish was discontinued and absorbed by the Inner City Parish (then City church, now H. Nicolaas).

To continue service in the Krijtberg, now in the form of a rectory church, an organisation was needed, organised according to ecclesiastical law. For this purpose the RC Foundation The Krijtberg was established. Its statutes have been approved by the diocese of Haarlem-Amsterdam. The bishop appoints the rector on the recommendation of the Regional superior of the Society of Jesus, because the pastoral service is consigned to the Jesuits in the Netherlands.

The priests and deacons of the Inner City churches of Amsterdam cooperate with each other and have regular meetings to coordinate pastoral activities.

The Krijtberg is 100% dependent on donations from the visitors: there are no subsidies from the city, the province or the diocese. The state may occasionally support big restauration works with a subsidy, because the church is a national monument. Ordinary maintenance work has to be paid for by the RK Stichting De Krijtberg.

The board of the RC Foundation The Krijtberg has the final responsibility for the management of church activities in De Krijtberg. The Jesuit rector is the chair.
