Ongoing Events and Programs

Chaplains’ Tea

We look forward to re-starting our biweekly Chaplains’ Tea, an opportunity to gather with friends and colleagues from across our campus.  Please check back for more information about the time, place and format.

Torah Study

Each Friday, Michael Goldman gathers a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff for Torah Study. We are exploring the multiple meanings of the text, from a number of perspectives: classical Jewish, Christian, Muslim, scientific, historical, and literary. For further information, please email Jewish chaplain Michael Goldman.


Theology and Culture Reading Group

The Theology & Culture Reading Group serves as an informal online community-building space for law students and graduate students from different disciplines to exchange ideas about topics of interest.  Students take turns choosing (brief) readings, sparking the discussion, and also providing an entry point for those who may not have had time to read that week.  T&C meets online every other Tuesday from 6 – 7:30 p.m.  Co-facilitated by Amy Uelmen (Law School) and Ryann Craig (Main Campus / Berkley Center).  To be included in the readings distribution list, contact Amy at or Ryann at


Catholics and Cultural Questions Brown Bag

An informal online space to explore the latest Catholic documents and questions about how the Catholic intellectual tradition engages current cultural controversies and questions.  Co-facilitated by Fr. Ricardo Avila, S.J. and Amy Uelmen.  Meets online every other Wednesday from 1:00 – 2:00, starting with a brainstorm on topics of interest on Wednesday September 15.  Open to faculty, staff and students.  For more information, contact Amy Uelmen,

Offerings by appointment

Spiritual Accompaniment

We realize that law school can be a stressful and hectic experience.  We are committed to walking with you as you work to foster the holistic resources you need to flourish.  Whether or not you have a religion or spiritual tradition on which you draw, your spiritual life can be an important resource.  Chaplains from various traditions, both at the Law Center and on the main campus, are available to listen with care and expertise, and are happy to assist you in the work of integrating your law school experiences and discerning your future direction.

Special Events

Festival of Gratitude (coming in November)

The Festival of Gratitude is an annual opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to share expressions of gratitude from their own lives, communities, and traditions. Past participants have displayed art, recited poetry, played music, said prayers, shared food, and told jokes. Every member of the Georgetown Law community is welcome.


Food Builds Community (coming in November)

It’s simple: assemble a group of people that reaches across any kind of difference – political, religious, national origin, or role at the Law Center. Find a time when you are all free to share a meal. Then register with Campus Ministry to pick up your free pie, and enjoy a sweet treat together! This popular program will return in November.
