Inspired by St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, Georgetown University is rooted in a 500-year-old spiritual tradition. We celebrate and share this unique spirituality through a variety of retreats that welcome students of all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs. 

General Retreats

General Retreats are accessible to students of all backgrounds. Students are invited to reflect on what gives purpose and meaning to their lives.


Chaplaincy Retreats

Campus Ministry offers a variety of retreats rooted in particular faith traditions. These retreats provide students opportunities to grow in their faith, build community, and further their spiritual journeys.

Ignatian Retreats

Rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, these retreats introduce various forms of Ignatian spirituality, such as Ignatian contemplation and spiritual direction.
