    Sacred Lectures

    Georgetown’s Sacred Lectures continue a tradition of the early Jesuits who offered talks in churches outside times for worship, with the intent to inform, edify and inspire listeners seeking to grow in their faith. The lectures, offered by esteemed presenters in Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart, cover a range of topics related to theology, spirituality, and the Jesuit intellectual and spiritual tradition.

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 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 the programs of the Office of Mission and Ministry: 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 Catholic and Jesuit university, we respect and value the wide variety of religious and humanist perspectives of our colleagues. We strive to represent a “centered pluralism” in our offerings and respectfully engage the particular traditions represented in our community.
