Justin and Sarah Murray
Chaplain-In-Residence - McCarthy 304
Justin and Sarah Murray are excited to be in their third year as Chaplains-in-Residence at Georgetown. They met in 2003 during their first year at Harvard University, where they served as student leaders in Catholic campus ministry. After moving to Georgetown for law and medical school, respectively, they were married in December of 2008.
While in college, they planned and led retreats, worked with the homeless, moderated discussion groups about social justice and ethics issues, coordinated interfaith events, served as peer spiritual advisors, promoted healthy relationships on campus, and co-authored and presented talks based on Pope John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body.” Since coming to DC, they have served in music, pro-life, and graduate school ministries, as well as working with the disadvantaged in Washington, DC and saving the world one vegetable at a time in the Georgetown campus garden!
Justin, who was raised in Boulder, CO, enjoys the mountains, hiking, soccer, piano, philosophy, writing, dogs, and biking around DC. In his legal career, he has worked for judges in the federal district and appellate courts and is now an appellate attorney for the DC Public Defender Service.
Sarah, hailing from the Chicago area, is a resident physician in the Georgetown-Providence Hospital Family Medicine program. She has special interests in underserved medicine, medical ethics, fertility awareness, and the Jesuit ideal of "cura personalis,” and she has done international medical work in Mexico, Haiti, Ecuador, and Argentina. In her free time, she loves to sing, play violin, shop at farmers' markets, bake for McCarthy, and enjoy a good cup of tea.
The Murrays very much look forward to meeting you! Please drop by and say hello.
