On Eagles' Wings

A confidential online prayer request service for alumni, parents and friends of Boston College.

Faith Programs and Service Opportunities

We recognize that we are called to share our time, talent, and resources with the world around us.  It is a lifetime commitment – a commitment worthy of St. Ignatius’ call to go “transform the world.” Consider these service opportunities

Fifth Sunday of Lent
