The Eucharist: Banquet for God's Pilgrim People

        A New Year's Weekend Retreat


The Eucharist is at the heart of Christian life and worship, saving mystery and promise, food for our journey in good times and bad. This weekend retreat is an opportunity to get away, be quiet, pray and reflect as we begin a new semester.

Open to BC faculty, administrators, staff and graduate students, this retreat will take place at Connors Retreat Center in Dover from Friday evening,   January 13, 2012 to Sunday, January 15, 2012. Barbara Quinn, RSCJ of The School of Theology and Ministry and Michael Boughton, S.J. of the Center will guide the retreat.


Lenten Retreat in Everyday Life


During the season of Lent, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality will once again offer the Retreat in Everyday Life, a seven-week prayer experience that is an opportunity to pause, reflect, listen and respond to the voice of God as God speaks to your heart.   Based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, this Retreat is Christian in focus and is open to people of all religious traditions. All Boston College faculty, staff and administrators are welcome to participate.

During the Retreat, each participant commits to spend some time each day in prayer (perhaps before work, during lunch or at night) and to a weekly meeting on campus with a spiritual guide (at a mutually convenient time).
