Boston University Catholic Center

The Catholic Center is the place to be at Boston University if you're Catholic or interested in the Faith. For many students, it is a home away from home. The CC is a strong community of people looking to grow closer to God while forming genuine friendships. Check out one of our many events to get involved. The Catholic Center is a place to grow in your faith through the sacraments, service, various programming, and guidance of the campus ministers.

Hello all!

Let me begin by saying that God is so good and that I have been so blessed in my life. I am 24 years old and have a beautiful wife, family, and life. So much of what I have has been a gift given through the Catholic Center. My first semester in college I did not go to Mass or go on the fall retreat (Power and Glory…and I totally missed out!). After months of life without the Church, I walked into Marsh Chapel and immediately felt at home. The Catholic Center became a home for me.

Adoration, retreats, daily Mass, Tuesday nights. My goodness, God blessed me in so many ways through the CC: I met Camille at some point (we don’t remember when), I got to live with a great bunch of Catholic men, prayer and discernment were a normal aspect of life, I fell in love with Blessed Sacrament, praise became a part of my prayer life, I started going to confession frequently (just to name a few).

After five years of directing the music for the CC, I am leaving to begin as music director at St. Malachy Parish in Burlington, MA. Change is difficult, but God showers us with his grace. I nervously accepted the new position, only to be flooded by peace and certainty that this is where God wants me to be. God formed me in the CC community through brotherhood and friendship, through direction and challenge, and most of all through the Sacraments. I will go out as a disciple of Christ and in the Holy Spirit to do His work elsewhere. That’s what it’s all about.

I will not be a stranger to the Catholic community at BU. It means too much to me! All of the beautiful students, Fran, Father David Barnes, and all of it. I will continue to pray for the CC. I will continue to support the CC financially. In honor of the CC, I will continue to work for His glory elsewhere. This is the transitory nature of the CC: we are fed and formed through this beautiful community, only to leave, and by grace, share that grace.

I am so grateful and blessed. Thank you.

Danny

Hey everyone, my friend's 8 month old baby passed away this morning. His name was Landon, and his parents' names are Emily and Andrew. Prayers for them would be much appreciated. Thank you.
