Confirmation & Reconciliation Services


Confirmation Preparation

Many times students arrive at Boston College and they have not received the sacrament of Confirmation. Campus Ministry offers a program every spring semester which provides the opportunity for Catholic students to prepare together to receive this sacrament. Candidates meet for faith sharing and instruction in the Catholic faith. During the small group meetings through prayer and reflection on the Scriptures, students have an opportunity to deepen their spirituality and grow in their faith. Fr Tony Penna coordinates the Confirmation Program.


Reconciliation Services

Reconciliation is so important in our lives -- reconciliation with significant people, reconciliation with ourselves and reconciliation with God. Campus Ministry offers opportunities in Advent and in Lent to gather and express our sorrow for our mistakes and our sins and to ask God for help and forgiveness. Opportunities for individual confession are offered at each of the services.

If you would like the Sacrament of Reconciliation on an individual basis, please stop by Campus Ministry at any time to see one of the priests or call 617-552-3475 for an appointment.


In addition, the sacrament of Reconciliation is offered in Saint Mary's, from 11:45 AM - 12 Noon, each class day, in the parlor just to the right in the residence corridor, or by appointment with one of the Jesuits.
