Putting Love Into Practice

Love consists in sharing
what one has
and what one is
with those one loves.

Love ought to show itself in deeds more than in words.

~St. Ignatius of Loyola

The heart of UCTC has always been, and will always be, the love and sharing of gifts and self between the people that make up our community. This includes those cohort members, alumni, friends, founders, donors, principals, staff, mentors, and students who have been, and will continue to be engaged with UCTC. Each member of this community makes up a special and important part in defining who we are and will become. The relationships cultivated between us as individuals and as a community are some of the greatest strengths of UCTC.

Though an individual formally commits to UCTC for only a short time, we strive to make a larger commitment of love to this community, as well as the global community, for the rest of our lives.


community provided support and love

It took less than two years for Boston to become my home and the UCTC community to become my family. Although UCTC is technically only a two-year program, its positive impact will forever remain with me. Living in a faith-based intentional community provided support and love to cope with the balancing act of grad school and the first two years of teaching.
