Annual Mass of the Holy Spirit Set for Sept. 16

Carrying on a Catholic university tradition that dates to the Middle Ages, the Boston College community will gather in the rose garden of the Jesuit residence on Sunday, Sept. 16, for a Mass of the Holy Spirit to open the academic year.

University President William P. Leahy, SJ, will preside at the Mass, to be offered at 4 p.m. in the garden adjoining St. Mary's Hall.

Rev. T. Frank Kennedy, SJ, associate professor and Music Department chairman, will give the homily, while priests of the Jesuit Community will concelebrate.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to bring their families to the Mass, which will be followed by a cookout. The Mass will be offered in Conte Forum in the event of rain.
