Jesuit Heritage Week 2016

We invite you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook where we publish updates from our blog and post important articles plus other content relevant to Georgetown.

The Hilltop's Jesuit Heritage Week officially begins on Saturday, though the first event was held earlier today.  There are events each day from this Sunday up until next Saturday.  We want to highlight Professor John Glavin's campus tour discussing Georgetown architecture (Thursday), the panel discussion on Jesuit education (Friday), and the profession of final vows for Father Schenden, S.J., to be held in Dahlgren Chapel on Saturday. 

Here's the description for the latter:

Join the Georgetown Jesuit Community and the family and friends of Fr. Greg Schenden, SJ, who will profess his final vows as a Jesuit at this special Mass. Profession of final vows marks a Jesuit’s definitive incorporation into the Society of Jesus. In the Jesuit order, one’s first vows, made after the completion of the two-year novitiate, are an offer to God – a promise to enter the Society of Jesus. At that time, the Society of Jesus agrees to walk with a Jesuit as he lives out the vows he has made to God. After a number of years of training, experience and discernment, the Society confirms one’s decision and promise, via the celebration of Final Vows.

Full schedule here.

And there's a brand new video with the Rector of the Community, Father Joseph Lingan, S.J., with five life tips beginning with the letter "G".
