In Memoriam

    Father James J. Hosie, SJ
    Our entire school community mourns the loss of Reverend James J. Hosie, SJ who passed to eternal life on May 30. Fr. Hosie spent the last three decades teaching religious education, coaching tennis and leading spiritual retreats for the Boston College High School community. He was a man of faith, integrity and compassion and he will be greatly missed. Due to declining health, Fr. Hosie retired during this past school year and BC High had the opportunity to thank him for his years of service at an all-school assembly in January. When asked to leave his parting wisdom he was quick to say, “Stay in the game that is your life. Play well while you can, and when you can't anymore - coach.”
