Catholic Charities Salutes PULSE

Catholic Charities Salutes PULSE

The Boston College PULSE Program was given a special recognition award at the annual Catholic Charities Volunteer Appreciation luncheon on April 8 for its community service work at three Catholic Charities sites.

Since 1992, students in PULSE - an interdisciplinary philosophy and theology course that includes a service component - have logged more than 35,000 hours at The Laboure Center, the Haitian Multi-Service Center and the St. Ambrose Family Inn.

Michelle Sterk Barrett, assistant to the program director, accepted the award on behalf of PULSE students, faculty and staff. Current PULSE students Caitlin Burke '05, Laura Spokas '05 and Kelli McGraill '06 attended the ceremony and spoke with Bishop Richard Lennon x'69, apostolic administrator of the Archdiocese of Boston, who praised their work and the service opportunities Boston College provides its students.
