Interfaith Virtual Reflection Experience

Participate anytime on the Interfaith Retreat webpage.


Take time to reflect through an interfaith lens! We couldn't gather for the Interfaith Retreat this April, so our Student Retreat Leaders have put together a menu of daily activities and videos designed to help you dig deeper into the ideas of self-worth, recognizing the worth of others, and finding those two ideas come together through an interfaith lens. It will focus on the theme, The Crossroads of Our Stories.

Virtual Degree Conferral

Sat. May 16 at 11 am


Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president, will confer degrees on Loyola's graduating students in a livestreamed ceremony. The University continues to plan an in-person Commencement ceremony, but the students' degrees will be conferred with the completion of their coursework next week, and we want to celebrate that!


Campus Ministry participated in celebrating our seniors by recording a special blessing for the Class of 2020, which will be available, along with other information on ways to celebrate this very special group of graduating students, on a special website dedicated to the Class of 2020--launching May 11!

Dear Seniors

View the uplifting messages on the Dear Seniors Webpage!


The Office of Student Engagement collected the stories of vocational discernment and global uncertainty from our faculty, staff and administrators . They hope they bring messages of support, encouragement, and guidance as members of the Class of 2020 seek your next steps in life beyond Loyola.


In times of uncertainty, the way forward can feel clouded or obstructed. It becomes easy to believe the obstacles ahead must be conquered alone. We forget, while our paths are unique, others have trail-blazed similar roads. If you listen closely, navigation tools and direction can be found in these stories. The Loyola Class of 2020 leaves a lasting impact on our hearts and collective history.

Loyola is a Top School for Service!

Campus Ministry is proud to be a part of the culture of service and justice at Loyola. The Catholic Volunteer Network (CVN) has named Loyola University Maryland a Top School for Service, including Loyola as one of only seven universities in the Mid-Atlantic to receive this achievement.


Twenty-eight institutions have been named as part of the CVN’s National Volunteer Week initiative. The award highlights the work by Loyola’s office of Campus Ministry, the Center for Community Service and Justice (CCSJ), and the Career Services to offer service-learning opportunities and support young adults by advocating for post-graduate service programs.
