Easter Sunday at Georgetown University (Traditional Latin Mass)
Since the University was on Easter break, there were only 3 undergraduates (all women); the server, also a student; a Jesuit priest who read the Epistle and the Gospel in English before the sermon; and myself in attendance, besides the priest who offered the Mass, Fr. Stephen Fields, S.J. The Crypt Chapel is small, but very beautiful. It looks like it underwent some "wreckovation" in the past, but the tabernacle was in the proper place, and the overall ambiance was very appropriate for the "extraordinary use" of the Latin Catholic Mass.

The Traditional Latin Mass is held twice a week in the Crypt Chapel (Wednesdays and Sundays) and only recently received the official recognition of the Georgetown campus ministry.
There are visual manifestations of Georgetown's Catholic identity. This statue of St. Joseph is outside St. Mary's Hall, the headquarters of the College of Nursing.
