It is hard to stereotype the people in any Harvard crowd and that is certainly true at the Harvard Catholic Center. Some students come by for Sunday Eucharist, while others get absorbed with projects and friendships that last for years. Still, all are bound by a common faith in Christ. For Catholic students, Harvard is as much a pilgrimage of the heart and soul as it as a challenge for strong minds.
Over the years, thousands of women and men have brought a rich tradition of Catholic life to the University. As a ministry of the Archdiocese of Boston and St. Paul Parish in Harvard Square, the Center keeps this tradition alive and flourishing on campus. This is reflected in the Center’s mission statement:
The Harvard Catholic Center invites students, faculty, alumni and the greater university community to grow into a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ through the Roman Catholic tradition of worship, inquiry, prayer and service to develop informed and compassionate individuals who use their intellectual and spiritual gifts for the benefit of the Church and the World.
