christian life community at boston college
"Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."
The Mission of Cura is to 'love one another as I have loved you' (John 13:34). Cura Personalis (care of the whole person) stems from the desire to see and care for a person as God sees and cares for that same person. Cura groups seek to become true Christian communities where its members listen, share, challenge, and are changed by and together to respond every more fully to God's voice in their life.
Student led groups meet once a week for an hour to pray and share 'highs, lows and seeds' of their week. The structure of BC's Cura-CLC program is made up of a council comprised of 2 student leaders, 6-8 students and a campus minister who meet weekly. Groups seek to discuss matters of faith and reflect on how to live more authentic lives.The Cura Council is largely responsible for the training and formation of new leaders, organizing and planning of wider social events on campus as well as determining the direction the program will grow in. This year there are roughly 36 student leaders who co-lead 18 groups. Cura welcomes all students interested in building lasting friendships that challenge the deeper questions of meaning and faith operating in all their experiences.
You do not have to be 'religious', Christian or Catholic to join. We invite you to give it a try and if after a few meetings, you decide it is not for you, no hard feelings! If you are someone who:
- desires to meet and deepen friendships here at BC
- is willing to share your story and hear others' stories
- welcomes breathing room to reflect with others
- build community and leave a lasting legacy while here at BC
