Georgetown celebrates Jesuit heritage


Georgetown’s 14th annual Jesuit Heritage Week began on Sunday and extended to Georgetown’s campus in Doha, Qatar for the first time.

“We are delighted that our friends in Doha are joining Jesuit Heritage Week. … Doha offers Georgetown a new frontier in the centuries’ old tradition of integrating learning, faith and service,” wrote Fr. Kevin O’Brien, S.J., vice president for mission and ministry, in an email to the Voice.

Doha hosted a nondenominational ESCAPE retreat among other traditional Georgetown events.

A D.C.-Doha Dialogue event on Monday linked the two campuses in a teleconference on the role of Jesuit education at each respective campus. According to Fr. Matthew Carnes, S.J., the event could not be public due to space limitations.
