Campus Ministers at Boston College promote the University’s Jesuit, Catholic mission by working collaboratively to make available to the whole community opportunities for worship, retreats, service-immersion, and pastoral care.
Campus Ministers assist in the coordination of weekly student liturgies, major University-wide Masses, and prayer services. Campus Ministers also work in partnership on other Mission and Ministry initiatives, as well as other University initiatives, focusing predominantly on the intellectual, social, and faith development of undergraduate students. The role requires the ability to provide both pastoral care and spiritual guidance to students and others in the University community.
Additionally, each Campus Minister maintains responsibility for administering a specific departmental program. A key responsibility for this position is management of the department’s popular Kairos retreat program. This includes coordinating the retreat’s overall structure and ensuring its Ignatian spirituality; facilitating the recruitment and selection of participants; overseeing the selection and ongoing formation of student leaders, co-directors, and retreat directors; managing program budget and resources, and supervising a graduate assistant.
