The Ignatian Society of Boston College serves to promote the spirit and tradition of St. Ignatius and the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). Our work focuses on two key areas: Keeping graduates from Jesuit high schools connected to their BC peers, and promoting the tenets of Jesuit spirituality across the wider BC campus.

帕特里克 Downes, BC '05, Psy.D., gave the Ignatian Society's inaugural AMDG Lecture. Downes, BC High '01, was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing alongside his wife, Jessica Kensky.

Many of our programs — including the popular Weekly 反省 and the Lunches with the Jesuits series — are open to the entire campus. We encourage you to join us as we together seek the greater glory of God.

The Weekly 反省, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9:45 p.m., is one of our most popular programs and is considered a foundation of Ignatian spirituality. St. Ignatius thought that, if we were to offer no other prayer, we should at least pray the 反省 daily.

The Ignatian Society’s Weekly 反省—held in the Manresa House—is 15-minutes of peer-led reflection looking over the course of one’s week, recognizing God in our lives, and closing with a commitment to seeking the magis in the days ahead.

All are welcome!

The Lunches with Jesuits program offers students the chance to have lunch with a member of the Jesuit Community at Boston College.

The lunches are held weekly throughout the semester in the Manresa House. Groups of four to six students are hosted by one of the Jesuits for great food and candid conversation. It’s an excellent way for students who haven’t yet met a Jesuit to do so.

If you are interested in attending, contact ignatian@iniciocorreo.com.

The Ignatian Society sponsors a monthly service opportunity to Jesuit works in the Greater Boston area.

We regularly visit the Campion Health Center for conversation and fellowship with retired Jesuits. The members of the Jesuit Community living at Campion are always very grateful to see students from Boston College.  

All are invited to join us for a visit with these great Jesuits who have dedicated their lives to the greater honor and glory of God. BC students’ presence inspires them and they, in turn, are a source of great inspiration for us.

The Ignatian Society's 校友 Programs committee organizes and facilitates events for the 600+ Jesuit high school alumni at Boston College. These events include our annual Jesuit high school barbecue, high school “reunion” dinners, and other opportunities for fellowship.
