Mass Of The Holy Spirit Set For Sunday, Sept. 7

University President William P. Leahy, SJ, will be the chief celebrant and homilist at the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 4:30 p.m. in O'Neill Plaza.

Academic Vice President and Dean of Faculties William B. Neenan, SJ, and College of Arts and Sciences Dean J. Robert Barth, SJ, will serve as principal concelebrants, with other members of the Jesuit Community participating. The Boston College Liturgy Arts Group also will perform at the event.

The Mass of the Holy Spirit is traditionally celebrated in Catholic institutions at the beginning of the academic year. Faculty and staff are particularly encouraged to attend the Mass and bring members of their family.

Following the Mass, a barbecue will be held on the Bapst Library Lawn, featuring performances by University music groups.

In case of rain, the event will be held in the Flynn Recreation Complex.
