Campus Ministry offers a variety of programs for Boston College graduate students, including worship, retreats, prayer and reflection opportunities, and spiritual direction.
Rooted in Ignatian spirituality and scripture, CLC’s mission is to enable students to walk together on their personal and communal faith journeys. CLC groups seek to create a space for being attentive to the Spirit in their lives and world around them and to respond out of love.Learn More

Spiritual direction is an on-going relationship between a “directee” (person seeking direction) and a “director” (qualified person giving guidance) to discuss the directee’s spiritual life. Through conversation and reflection, the directee becomes more attuned, and can respond more fully, to God in all areas of their life.Learn More
For graduate students only, Connections aims to explore the intersection of work and faith, and to provide a venue for ongoing conversation about how we navigate the connection between the two. Each session offers the opportunity to hear from professors and other professional staff from the various graduate schools on how this intersection plays out in their own work life, followed by a question and answer period. Connections presenters and other staff members then serve as conversation partners for students who want to learn more about how people integrate their faith and their work.
Connections is held monthly, with a flexible schedule based on the needs of the students in each school.
