The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has brought about unprecedented global challenges, including for our own University community. We recognize the difficulties presented with the transitions many face and the Office of Campus Ministry is here to accompany you in the coming days and weeks. As people of faith, we find hope in the comfort of an abiding God and our love and support for one another.
Community is at the center of the Boston College experience, which makes this time difficult for all of us – particularly the Class of 2020. Our office is working to find creative ways to bring people together, despite the physical distances that might separate us. Several of these opportunities are below. This page also includes resources, including contact information for our staff. Our email – firstname.lastname@example.org – is monitored throughout the day and is the best way to reach out if you would like to get in touch with a campus minister for pastoral support, need care from the department, or want details on any of these virtual offerings.
The Stations of the Cross – which follows the sufferings and crucifixion of Jesus – invites us to prayerfully consider our shared humanity and solidarity. Pray the Stations alongside members of the Boston College community who shared their reflections of suffering, strength, and solidarity amid the coronavirus pandemic. Participate from afar with our Stations of the Cross in the Time of COVID-19 playlist.
Our Campus Ministry staff remains available to you despite our distance. Whether you want to be in touch about a specific Campus Ministry program or have a general question, we are here to support you.
Reflections on Being Connected
Despite our distances, we are reminded of the ways we are connected – to the people, places, and moments we love. Campus Ministry invites you to reflect on these connections with gratitude and, as you're comfortable, share them with us so we can share them with others. During this time of distance it is important to remember that God is with us, God is within us, and to connect with one another by sharing these experiences.
Please visit bit.ly/BCreflect to share your brief reflection, which will be posted throughout the days ahead on our social media channels (@bccampusmin).
Campus Ministry is offering a virtual Prayer Wall as a special way to come together as one Boston College community and pray for those seriously affected by COVID-19.
Submit your prayer intentions online and these requests will be included at daily Mass offered by the BC Jesuit Community.
