Center for Ignatian Spirituality Programs
Where BC faculty give passionate talks on topics that inspire them
Ignatius Loyola encouraged the first Jesuits to share their deepest desires and aspirations with other fellow Jesuits. For him that constant communication would unite, console, and edify them deeply (Constitutions VIII, 673).
With CIS Talks, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality wants to emulate this practice by inviting BC faculty to share with their peers those topics, desires, and passions that inspire and motivate them.
CIS Talks will take place at the BC Club, 100 Federal Street 36th Floor, in Boston. Dates for CIS Talks for the 2018-2019 academic year will be posted by the beginning of September. This event is by invitation only. Information about the specific topic of the talk and presenter is forthcoming.
Faculty interested in participating in one of our CIS Talks can send us an email expressing their interest at email@example.com.
The Center for Ignatian Spirituality is pleased to announce an in-residence “Jesuit Fellow” position available for any Jesuit around the world interested in spending four to nine months at Boston College during the academic year (September - May) collaborating with the work of The Center and other pastoral ministries. Jesuits who are interested must directly contact the director to explore conditions and availability. In your initial contact to the director, Tomeu Estelrich, please include your CV and a brief explanation of your intentions while at Boston College.
The candidate must have a proficient English level and a fervent desire to exercise his ministerial talents in our community. The Center will provide all the necessary means to succeed in such enterprise.
This program is a joint initiative of The Center for Ignatian Spirituality and Boston College’s Jesuit Community.
