The Office of Campus Ministry, faithful to its Jesuit, Catholic heritage, attends to the sacramental and pastoral needs of the Boston College community. This is accomplished through daily, weekend, and campus-wide Masses, numerous retreats, faith communities, spiritual direction, and service programs.
SEPTEMBER EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
Freshmen: 48HOURS weekends are filling up fast! Don't miss out on a great opportunity to meet new students and reflect on your BC experience while getting away from campus to a beautiful New England location. Financial assistance is available for all who need it.
Learn more here, and register online through Agora.
Upperclassmen: FYE is also accepting applications for 48HOURS leadership teams. Consider applying to be a Point Guard or a Group Leader. You do not have to have gone on 48HOURS in order to apply for these leadership positions, but apply soon as we are naming both first and second semester teams in the next month.
Find more information here, or stop by FYE in Stokes S140.
The Beginnings Retreat (October 24-26) is a get-away experience for first-year students to explore faith, friendship and their relationship with God as it relates to the BC experience. If you have any questions, ask your Peer Minister. Learn more and sign up today!
Register for a cura group at bc.edu/cura! Cura groups are student-led small faith sharing groups that meet once a week for an hour to pray, share highs and lows, and uncover where we see God in our lives. See BC's campus ministry website to find out more information and join a group!
Looking for a way to put your faith into action? The Volunteer and Service Learning Center is partnering with CRS -- Catholic Relief Services. This partnership will connect BC students to the Catholic community's official humanitarian agency (CRS), whose efforts now reach nearly 100 million people throughout the world. CRS seeks to defend and protect the rights of the world's most vulnerable and marginalized groups. If you have an active interest in issues related to social justice, human rights, and global solidarity, and are looking to deepen your commitment to a "faith that does justice," please consider becoming an ambassador. The BC CRS Student Ambassadors will join a network of students throughout the country mobilizing their campuses through educational efforts, responses to international crises, and legislative advocacy. To find out more, please attend the information session on Wednesday, September 24th at 7:30 PM in Stokes S211 or contact Ashlen Nimmo.
Prayer Leadership Program
Campus Ministry is starting a prayer leadership program for anyone interested in being a leader of prayer in various forms: small group leadership, giving talks on retreats, being a lector or Eucharistic minister at mass, and more. If you have any experience, or even if you're just interested and have no experience, find out more on Campus Ministry's website or contact campus minister Rick Rossi.
Liturgy Arts Group
Attention singers, instrumentalists, and bell ringers! You are invited to enliven the experience of worship by sharing your special gifts at regular weekend liturgies and special events through the Liturgy Arts Group of Boston College. For more information, visit LAG's website, email LAG or contact our director, Meyer Chambers.
Are you thinking about becoming a Catholic or receiving the sacraments? The RCIA program will begin on Tuesday, September 16. The first semester is a time to explore the Catholic faith; there is no religious commitment involved. If you’re interested, contact Sister Mary to set up an appointment.
Our collection this week and next week will benefit the work of The Holy Trinity High in Kingston, Jamaica. This Roman Catholic institution serves nearly 1,400 boys and girls in the inner city of Kingston and they need our support to continue their mission to achieve excellence and student improvement. Two of our BC Alumni Kristy Davis ’14 and Stephen Edward ’08 are presently in Jamaica teaching at this school. Your contribution will enhance the educational opportunities for these students, who by faith, we recognize as our sisters and brothers. Thank you for being generous!
