What is a date and how do we go about dating? These are questions BC faculty member Kerry Cronin has been asking her classes for yeas. The documentary film The Dating Project Movie features Cronin—the associate director of BC's Lonergan Institute, Philosophy Department Boston College member, Boston College Center for Student Formation fellow—and follows five single young men and women in their own quests to find authentic love and meaningful relationships.

The Dating Project plays in movie theaters nationwide tonight, as a special one-night event, featuring an exclusive discussion with Cronin. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.

"Scripture advises us that we should turn the other cheek to violence. However, my Jesuit training has taught me that in addition to nonviolent resistance we should hit back with love. My beautiful, loving wife, Jessica, and I were blown up in the name of God. Our bodies were torn apart and our psyches shattered in the name of religion. We were casualties of a religious war. At least that’s what we were led to believe." So begins an essay Patrick Downes, a a graduate of the Boston College Lynch School of Education and a Boston Marathon bombing survivor, writes for "C21 Resources," a publication of the The Church in the 21st Century Center (C21 Center).

“I want to thank Bianca and Megan. After I started coming here to the All Bright Community Center for Coffee Hour and then taking Financial Coaching, everything in my life started falling into place.” - Shirley A. Shirley A. has been a part of the Allston Brighton community for over 17 years. In her young 30 years of life she has had her fair share of challenges. Her 9 year old son Evan was born with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. and when he was just 3 years old, his dad died in a tragic car crash, leaving Shirley as the sole caretaker for their son. In early 2018, after a few one-on-one sessions through the Resident Services Goal Getters financial coaching program, Shirley maximized her income by landing a pre-school teacher position! Now she’s even more motivated and on to fulfilling her next goals, building her credit and getting a bigger apartment!!! Economic mobility, education and wealth building are essential in breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. - PEOPLE OF ABCDC #pplofabcdc #allston #brightonma
