The Multifaith Retreat brings together students of different faiths, traditions, and worldviews to find common values, share in friendship and experience, and together become advocates for interfaith cooperation. This overnight retreat seeks to foster community among the many religions celebrated at Boston College. Our Jesuit, Catholic mission calls us to support students of all faiths in their search for ultimate meaning. Students will both reflect upon their religious identities, and deepen their understanding of the religious experiences of others. 

Information about this year's retreat will be soon posted.

For questions or more information please contact Campus Minister, Rev. James M. Hairston
