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'll bring the tea and snacks, you bring the conversation.
