Residential Ministry staff at Boston College works to support the spiritual, intellectual, and personal formation of those they encounter and accompany.  Our Resident Ministers and Graduate Ministers serve as resources for our Resident Directors, Graduate Assistants, Resident Assistants and undergraduate students.

Residential Ministers serve as conversation partners with students and are open to talking about myriad issues that unfold as students discover themselves throughout their college journey.

In addition to their pastoral role, the Residential Ministry Staff offer hospitality, opportunities for prayer, discussions around a variety of topics, and other engagements to build community in the halls.

Three Pillars of Residential Ministry

Hospitality

Hospitality

Ministers seek to create a welcoming, inclusive, and affirming environment in the residence halls during all encounters that develop a sense of belonging for members of the community.

Accompaniment

Accompaniment

Ministers serve as conversation partners who invite, encourage, and journey with students and staff on their quest to engage in genuine and authentic dialogue with others. 

Faith

Hospitality

Inspired by Christ, ministers encourage and assist individuals in learning about their own and other’s faith traditions and find meaning in their lives through the eyes of faith.

Resident Ministers

Resident Ministers (RM) are full time professionals or doctoral students at Boston College who also serve in this role, many of whom are also Campus Ministers. RMs can be Jesuits, ordained ministers, members of religious orders, or lay ministers who are assigned to and live within a residential community.  The RMs serve as conversation partners and a pastoral presence for students and the residential staff in their community, offer hospitality and prayer opportunities within the halls, and serve in a 24-hour on-call rotation to respond to students in crisis and as requested. 

When interacting with students and staff, they are supporting the academic, social, and spiritual formation of those in their community.  Many RMs are also an integral part of Catholic liturgies at St. Joseph's Chapel (Upper Campus), Trinity Chapel (Newton Campus) and St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish. Click here to see the daily mass offerings. The RMs are representatives of both the Office of Residential Life and Campus Ministry.

Graduate Ministers

Graduate Ministers (GM) are given opportunities to work alongside the Assistant Director of Residential Ministry on programming, retreats, trainings, and overall assist with the continued education and development of staff and students within Residential Life around Jesuit and Ignatian pedagogy, spiritual development, and multi-faith education. The GMs serve as a resource and support to residents, Resident Assistants, Graduate Assistants, and professional staff on topics relating to student formation and development inspired by the three pillars of Graduate Ministry: hospitality, accompaniment, and faith. GMs will focus on the planning and execution of active programmatic efforts around the Jesuit Tradition portion of the Community Engagement Model, religious holidays, collaborate with on and off-campus partners to provide opportunities for individuals to partake in service, and attend religious service to focus on this aspect of diversity and inclusion.
