Campus Ministry Programs
Students interested in continuing to explore their religious and spiritual identities and those committed to their faith tradition are invited to participate in programs and student organizations that connect with a variety of religions, spirituality, and inter-faith focuses.
Georgetown has a long history of creating a faith environment which nurtures and supports many traditions in our University community. Campus Ministry offers several programs within the different faith traditions, which encourage that growth. By helping students deepen and explore their faith, we also seek to give them the tools they need to engage other faith traditions.
Inspired by St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, Georgetown University is rooted in a 500-year-old spiritual tradition. Campus Ministry celebrates and shares this unique spirituality through a variety of retreats that welcome students of all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs.
MAGIS Immersion and Justice Program
Magis, the Ignatian ideal of more, asks people to go deeper and pay more intimate attention to their feelings, experiences and significant relationships with God and others. The Magis Immersion and Justice Program puts this ideal into practice. By joining, students agree to advocate, fundraise and pray for and with our partners in developing countries and immigrant communities. The focus of these trips is on building relationships, cultivating awareness of social justice and engaging in reflection and solidarity with the poor.
Participation in Magis is open to all Georgetown University undergraduate students of all religious traditions. Graduate students may participate if space is available.
Campus Ministry student groups represent a wide diversity of traditions. Each of the chaplaincies have affiliated student groups which provide spiritual, social, and service events for their members. These groups have representatives on the Interfaith Council, participate in ecumenical and interfaith events, as well as highlight their own traditions’ faith and practice.
