The Office of Mission and Ministry advances the Catholic identity, Ignatian heritage, and Jesuit mission of Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic and Jesuit university in the country. The Office supports the integration of learning, faith, and service through a broad array of programs and partnerships that engage students, faculty, staff, University leadership, and alumni in the understanding and practice of our religious identity, values, and commitments.
Each year, thousands of individuals participate in our programming through retreats, seminars, lectures, national and international immersion experiences, service projects, and opportunities for worship and spiritual reflection on campus, on location, and on-line.
As a constitutive feature of our Catholic and Jesuit identity, the Office of Mission and Ministry provides a spiritual home at Georgetown for people of all religious and non-religious backgrounds. We strive to represent a “centered pluralism” in our programming and outreach, and respectfully engage the particular traditions represented in and by the members of our Hoya family.

Kicking Off the 2021 Ignatian Year
May 21st, 2021
On the 20th of May, 1521, Ignatius of Loyola was struck in the leg by a cannonball in the Battle of Pamplona—an event that would forever change his life. This year, as we celebrate that 500-year anniversary of Ignatius’s ‘cannonball moment,’ we are called to reflect on the purpose of our own lives, how we make and find meaning with and among others, and how we—like Ignatius—might live more fully into God’s dream for each of us.
