Chaplains-In-Residence and Jesuits-In-Residence
Georgetown University is committed to cura personalis – concern for and care of each student as a unique individual – and to the belief that learning and personal development are significantly enriched through relationships and experiences outside the classroom. Drawn from different faith traditions, Georgetown’s Chaplains-In-Residence (CIRs) and Jesuits-In-Residence (JIRs) are central to achieving these goals. Both clergy and lay, CIRs and JIRs live as neighbors in student residence halls and apartments and are available for everything from casual conversation to hall meetings, shared meals to community celebrations, individual guidance to gatherings for prayer, and more. Through personal invitation, presence, outreach, and referral, CIRs and JIRs support students as they develop as individuals, members of the Georgetown community, and faith-filled, responsible citizens of the world.
Campus Ministry provides a "Chaplain On-Call" service where students and parents can reach a Chaplain-in-Residence after normal business hours and on weekends. To reach the Chaplain On-Call after normal business hours and on weekends, call or text 202-677-0361.
