Rev. Gregory Schenden, S.J.,

Rev. Gregory Schenden, S.J., Director of Campus Ministry, guides the chaplains and staff of the multi-faith Office of Campus Ministry in service of its mission as a vital resource to all students and a leading partner in the work of intellectual, social, and spiritual formation across the university. A graduate of John Carroll University, Fr. Schenden entered the Society of Jesus in 1997. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2008 and professed his Final Vows in 2016 at Georgetown’s Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart. Fr. Schenden earned his M.A. in Philosophy from Loyola University Chicago and his M.Div. from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. When not tending to his ministerial responsibilities at Georgetown, Fr. Schenden can be found tending to his own spiritual formation by admiring Mark Rothko’s works at the National Gallery, taking in live music at such DC venues as the 9:30 Club and The Black Cat, or striving to make poetic connections between Gerard Manley Hopkins and Kendrick Lamar.
