Center for Ignatian Spirituality at Boston College

an office in the division of university mission and ministry

Joseph O'Keefe, S.J., Director

Welcome to the website of the Center for Ignatian Spirituality, a department in the Division of Mission and Ministry at Boston College.

Since its foundation in 1997, the Center has been a resource to enhance the Ignatian and Jesuit character of the University. The Center provides opportunities for communal prayer and individual spiritual direction.  In collaboration with other units on and off campus, the Center sponsors lectures and workshops that raise awareness of the Ignatian worldview.   We invite you to participate in our programs and to take advantage of the many wonderful resources that are linked to our website.  Please contact us if you want further information or if you have thoughts about ways that the Center can serve the religious needs of the Boston College community and beyond.

God bless you.

Joseph M. O’Keefe, S.J.
