If you happen to be unaware of the fact that it’s Jesuit Heritage Week, catch up fast before the food passes you by. The week might be devoted to understanding Georgetown’s Catholic and Jesuit heritage, but the free noms abound.
Wednesday is the day to be hungry, with not one but two foodie JHW events10 to satisfy your cravings.
Start with the Jesuits in Interfaith Cooperation event, where you can reflect on the interfaith experiences in everyday life at Georgetown, while dining on light refreshments. Head over to McShain Lounge in McCarthy Hall from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. to indulge in some free food and reflective conversation.
Not quite full after that event? Head right on over to the Religion and Faith Dynamics in Latin American Communities panel discussion, and be sure to fill up on the Latin American food that will be served. The event will take place in 340 Hariri from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Thursday brings the last of the Jesuit-related free food of the week with a talk by Ron Castaldi of the Social Justice Ministry of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, complete with breakfast. Head over to McKenna Hall in Holy Trinity from 9 to 11 a.m. to learn how you could become a man or woman for others, and how to get a delicious start to the day.
Saturday offers another rather interesting,
if not food-related, Jesuit event for Georgetown’s foodies. Ever thought about how cool the Jesuits are, and how many stories they must have? If you’re interested in hearing them, then be sure to catch Secret Lives of the Georgetown Jesuits this Saturday. Fr. Howard Gray, SJ, Fr. Otto Hentz, SJ, and Fr. John O’Malley, SJ will be sharing some of their remarkable adventures from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Wolfington Hall in what promises to be an fascinating evening.

The cold weather might have decided to take a short vacation this week, but at least, like winter, free food is coming.
Start the weekend off right by indulging yourself in decadent chocolate, completely for free! Cocova, near Dupont Circle, will be hosting their sample day this Saturday featuring such delights as “Eclat Pretzel Bar” and “Valrhona Jivar Pecan”, among other exotic deliciousness. Head over to 1904 18th Street from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. for your chance to eat your heart out in cocoa.
Close out the weekend with the opening reception for Jesuit Heritage Week, and close that gnawing hunger with the prospect of free food. Jesuit Heritage Week seeks to make Georgetown’s Catholic and Jesuit identity tangible for the community, and is kicking the week off well with seasonal refreshments for all. Stop by the second floor of Healy from 9 to 10 p.m., naturally after mass, for the chance to hang out with the Jesuits and chow down on some delicious treats.
