Georgetown appoints Hindu chaplain

Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic institution in the US, has become the first American college to engage a Hindu priest as a campus chaplain.

Brahmachari Vrajvihari Sharan has been appointed to provide spiritual leadership for the Hindus studying at the Jesuit University in Washington, DC. Father Greg Schenden, a Catholic chaplain, explained to the Washington Post that the school’s goal is to encourage spiritual growth for all students, regardless of their religious faith.
