Animated by the vision of St. Ignatius Loyola and the Society of Jesus, the school seeks to provide our student body with a well-rounded program of studies and activities aimed at the formation of character and the promotion of the faith that does justice. As a key component of this overall program, Campus Ministry is a vital expression of our school’s reason for being.
BC High seeks to challenge our students to transcend academic excellence and to become young men of competence, conscience, and compassion. In this way, we hope to help our students to grow in faith and to prepare them for active participation in both their religious and civic communities through service to others.
The Campus Ministry office seeks to support the spiritual formation of all members of the Boston College High School community in a manner that is both inviting and respectful of each person’s faith tradition and personal experience. Campus Ministry programs are open to persons of all faiths and denominations.
The Campus Ministry office leads the school in its liturgical and sacramental experiences, all student retreats, freshman formation through the guidance of the Senior Mentor program, student support of school activities by way of the Ignatian Key Society, and a faith-based interaction with the larger Boston community through the St. Louis Project (a homeless outreach service to men and women living on the Boston Common).
