BC’s Mission Comes Alive in Spring Events
The spring calendar points to some of BC’s most cherished alumni traditions of faith and service. Laetare Sunday lightens the Lenten season, BC’s National Day of Service takes the Jesuit mission to local communities, and the 26th Annual Wall Street Council Tribute Dinner brings 1,000 members of the financial community together for a great cause in New York City.
Eagles Celebrate Faith
Laetare Sunday marks the midpoint of Lent with a joyful celebration of Mass. The 63rd annual celebration will take place on Sunday, March 30, in Conte Forum, with University President William P. Leahy, S.J., presiding. A family brunch will immediately follow.
Antonio “TJ” Martinez, S.J., ’92, ThM’07, will be honored with the Alumni Ignation Award during the brunch. Fr. Martinez is the founding president of Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston, Texas, an innovative high school that combines a rigorous college prep program with a salaried part-time job, exclusively serving children living at or below the poverty line.
All are welcome; registration is required.
Eagles Give Back
Every year, Eagles everywhere celebrate BC’s National Day of Service by bringing the University’s mission of “men and women for others” to their own communities. Last year, more than 30 alumni chapters planned unique service projects that gave alumni, family, and friends the opportunity to revitalize parks and public spaces, assist the homeless, and improve the lives of children in their areas.
BC’s ninth annual day of service celebration on April 12 is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet. View currently planned projects and register today.
Eagles Take Manhattan
The Waldorf Astoria New York will fill with financially-minded Eagles on Thursday, April 24, for the 26th Annual Wall Street Council Tribute Dinner. This signature evening is one of the University’s most important fundraising events, attended each year by more than 1,000 BC alumni and friends. In its first 25 years, the Tribute Dinner raised more than $20 million for the Presidential Scholars Program, which provides scholarships to top students from around the world and helps them grow into tomorrow’s leaders.
This year’s dinner will honor philanthropists and BC benefactors Peter S. Lynch ’65, H’95, P’01, Vice Chairman, Fidelity Investments; Treasurer, The Lynch Foundation and Carolyn A. Lynch, H’09, P’01, President and Chairman, The Lynch Foundation.
