BTC teachers are challenged to grow personally and spiritually through communal living.
Every week, one of the community nights is dedicated to remembering why we are here: to love and serve Christ and his people. Our prayer nights include an intimate mass in our community chapel, a dinner together (usually made by Program Director Fr. Ronny O'Dwyer), and a time to reflect, pray and share together. This time together is critical as it allows a place for Billiken teachers to be vulnerable with each other and support each other through the many challenges they may face.
In addition to the weekly prayer nights, Billiken teachers also attend three retreats throughout the year. This time is an opportunity to retreat from our daily lives to remind ourselves of our purpose and to reflect on where God is calling us to next.
St. John the Baptist
Together as a community, everyone lives at St. John the Baptist in South City. Each person has their own room while there are common rooms, a library, a laundry room and a kitchen available to everyone. The parish of St. John the Baptist is incredibly welcoming and provides many opportunities for engagement.
