Alumni Association hosts Jesuits

Sixteen retired Boston College Jesuits were honored at last Saturday's BC-Miami basketball game in Conte Forum as part of the Alumni Association's Retired Jesuits Remembrance Program.

The Jesuits, who are now living at the Campion Center in Weston, also were invited to attend a reception following the game, hosted by the Alumni Association Executive Board.

"We feel it's very important to make sure the Jesuit priests and brothers at the Campion Center know they are appreciated, and in our thoughts and hearts," said Alumni Association Treasurer Charles Heffernan Jr., '66, who helped organize the event.
