All are cordially invited to the annual celebration of Laetare Sunday at Boston College. This Mass marks the midpoint of Lent and is intended to provide encouragement as we progress through the penitential season of Lent.
University President William P. Leahy, S.J., will preside at the Mass. Brunch will immediately follow Mass.
This year’s featured guest speaker and Ignatian Award recipient will be Antonio “TJ” Martinez, S.J., ’92, MDiv/ThM’07. Fr. Martinez is the founding president of Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston, Texas.
Launched in August 2009, Cristo Rey Jesuit is an innovative, game changing Jesuit high school that combines a rigorous college prep program with a salaried part-time job, exclusively serving children living at or below the poverty line. In June 2013, Cristo Rey graduated its first class, all of whom were accepted into college. Fr. Martinez has earned five graduate degrees including three degrees from Boston College, a law degree from the University of Texas School of Law, and a graduate degree from Harvard University. In 2012, Houston’s Papercity magazine named him one of four “new influencers” in the city.
