"The prayer ribbons are so reflective of the compassionate spirit that defines Boston College." - The Church in the 21st Century Center (C21 Center) Associate Director Karen Kiefer. Currently, you can share your prayers and gratitude, especially for the Class of 2018, by writing your intentions on a ribbon and tying it to the Bapst Library fence. Last year's ribbons are on display in St. Joseph's Chapel. As the prayer ribbons multiply, so will the cases and the chapel locations. http://on.bc.edu/PrayerRibbons
