Fr. Leahy Announces New Planning Effort

Confronting fiscal and academic challenges - and a landscape dramatically altered by terrorist attacks and crisis in the Catholic Church - Boston College will embark on a major strategic planning effort to set long-term institutional goals and priorities, University President William P. Leahy, SJ, announced at Faculty Convocation on Wednesday in Robsham Theater.

'Church in the 21st Century' Debuts Sept. 18

With an opening event set for Sept. 18, Boston College this month officially launches its "The Church in the 21st Century" initiative, a two-year academic program that will explore the issues arising from the clergy sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church and provide a forum for the Catholic community to assist in the Church's renewal.

9/11, One Year Later: BC Reflects

For Patrol Officer/EMT Patrick Rose and his family, Boston College is more than a workplace. It is alma mater for his wife, Karen M.Ed.'92, and a place of learning for their daughter, Kimberly, a junior in the Lynch School of Education. This Wednesday, BC will take on another important role for Rose: as a community remembering the victims of last year's terrorist attacks, which include Karen Rose's first cousins, Peter and Susan Hanson and their 2-year-old daughter, Christine, who died in the crash of hijacked United Airlines Flight 175 at the World Trade Center.

Memorial Events Scheduled

Boston College will hold a Day of Remembrance on the first anniversary of Sept. 11 this Wednesday with Masses, memorial and prayer services and a candlelight vigil.
