Grad Retreats-Beginning January 27, 2014
Join us for Twilight Retreats at Murray House.  These events take place several times a semester and are meant to provide grad students with an occasion to meet folks from other BC programs, to enjoy a nice meal, and to pause for some reflection and sharing.  Please check back for upcoming retreats.

Off Campus Church
Are you looking for a Sunday community for liturgy?  Young adults have often found communities at St. Ignatius Parish Church at the corner of the campus, St. Cecelia's near the Prudential Center in the Back Bay, and Our Lady Help of Christians on Washington Street in Newton, near the Mass Pike.

Prayer for Graduate Students
for the Beginning of the School Year

Loving God, as I begin this semester in grad school, I offer you my thanks for the gifts that you have given me. You have blessed me in numerous ways and have put good and generous people on my path.

As the semester unfolds, keep me mindful of those blessings and of the wonderful opportunities that have enabled me to be here pursuing graduate studies. When the challenges arise, keep before me the joy that brought me to my field of study and the hope that calls me to keep moving forward.

May your Spirit guide me and direct this university. I pray this through Christ, your son and my brother, who is the way, the truth, and the life. Amen.
