Chaplains' Tea: Celebrating Postgraduate service

Join Campus Ministry every Tuesday any time between 3 and 3:50 for free tea, conversation, and a moment to pause your hectic day and relax for a few moments with our University Chaplains. This Chaplains' Tea will celebrate all those members of our Georgetown community who engaged in postgraduate service (ex. Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Teach for America, Peace Corps, City Year) and those seniors who are discerning volunteer commitments after graduation. We bring the tea and snacks, you bring the conversation. Immediately after Tea, please join us for our weekly Prayer for Peace and Justice at 3:50 p.m.
