Spiritual Life

When the heart is touched by direct experience, the mind may be challenged to change. - Peter Hans Kolvenbach, 29th Superior General of the Society of Jesus


Since the founding of the first Jesuit college in 1548, Jesuit education has placed great emphasis on the spiritual formation of each student. Today, Georgetown Prep continues preparing students to lead meaningful lives as leaders in the professions, the arts, government and the Church.

A combination of religious studies, retreats, personal and communal prayer, the celebration of the Eucharist, and opportunities to engage in service, allows each student to explore his own personal relationship with God. At the same time, our spiritual life programs encourage students to cultivate bonds with classmates, faculty and members of the greater Prep community.

Our Office of Campus Ministry administers a variety of activities such as retreats, liturgies, service programs and opportunities for discussion and reflection. These are all purposefully designed to help students learn the fundamental principles of Ignatian spirituality.

In Peace,

Mr. John Krambuhl
Director of Mission & Ministry
