2014 Alumni Soccer Game

On Saturday, December 13th, the 9th Annual Loyola Alumni Soccer Match took place. Over 35 former players returned to Smith Field, some remarkably still in shape, to battle this year’s varsity squad.

A wonderful barbecue lunch was served to all in attendance following the match.  Also a special touch to highlight this year’s event and in recognition of Loyola’s 150-year celebration, display boards that illustrate the coaching and championship team legacies were unveiled.

2014 Alumni Basketball Game

On Wednesday, November 26th, Thanksgiving Eve, the 35th Annual Loyola Alumni Basketball Game was held.  As has been the custom on this date, a number of former players return to Leavey Gymnasium to either demonstrate their skills are still sharp or that they are still capable of moving up and down the floor for at least a couple of minutes at a time.

The first of two games on this evening consisted of alumni from the classes of 2005 and earlier competing against one another, which was a prelude to the second contest when classes from 2006 and later battled this year’s varsity squad.

Over 60 basketball alums returned this year to share the customary hospitality with their families and our current players and their families – our traditional way to begin the Thanksgiving holiday.  Also a special touch to highlight this year’s event and in recognition of Loyola’s 150-year celebration, display boards that illustrate the coaching and championship team legacies were unveiled.  

A valued tradition shared by proud Cubs with their former teammates and coaches.

Ignatian Solidarity Network: A Teach-In for Justice and Peace

For a sixth year, Loyola has sent a delegation of students and teachers to the national meeting of Jesuit high schools and universities conducted by the ISN network.  Twenty two students and four teachers and staff traveled to Washington from November 14 – 19 to participate with 1,500 students and staff from 70 educational institutions.  For the first time, delegates attended from some of the Jesuit schools in eastern Canada and northern Mexico.

The six-day program included two days teach in by experts in a variety of on-going and current justice issues related to immigration, the environment, Central America, just wage, mother and child food insecurity, human trafficking, corporate social responsibility among others.  The program speakers include well known national experts, both Jesuit and lay, as well as college and high school students.

A key part of the program is the advocacy training module to develop the confidence, knowledge and skills needed for the student meetings with Members of Congress, both House and Senate, over the course of two days following the teach in.    The Loyola delegates met in teams with Representatives Bass, Becerra, Schiff and Sherman and their aides for advocacy sessions on behalf of immigration reform, Central American policy and the environment.   Letters of Commendation to Loyola are being received from these representatives on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Loyola’s founding.

Three Loyola alumni who serve on Capitol Hill as legislative aides to Members of the House, helped secure meetings and tours for the Loyola group are Christian LaBella, 2005; Patrick Boland, 2005; and Chris Randle, 2003.

LaBella was able to arrange a private Night Tour of the US Capitol for the Loyola delegates as well as tours of the White House, Pentagon and Newseum.  The Capitol night tour provided time and access to the main floors of the House and Senate chambers as well as Speaker Boehner’s balcony on the West Front of the building.

While on Capitol Hill, the Loyola group met with House Chaplain Jesuit Father Patrick Conroy who offered a personally guided custom daytime tour of two levels of the Capitol, including his office.  The making of a great tour is definitely the historical commentary that the tour guides offer, at which Fr. Conroy was quite good.

Loyola alumnus Jack Girardi, 1965, joined the Loyola students and teachers in Washington after the 150th Anniversary events in Los Angeles on November 15 and 16 for  a tour of the Library of Congress and the presentation of a copy of Dr. Kevin Starr’s “Loyola High School of Los Angeles: A Sesquicentennial History: 1865 – 2015”to the Development Director for inclusion in the Los Angeles history section of the collection.

As well, Congressmen Rodney Davis (R-Illinois) who led the Capitol Night Tour presented to Jack Girardi three special commemorative items for Loyola, including a  large US Flag which had been flown over the Capitol that day, a copy of the Congressional Record of the House of Representative, 113 Congress from November 18, 2014 commending Loyola on the occasion of the 150th anniversary and a beautifully bound copy of Glenn Brown’s of The History of the United States Capitol.  These items will be put on display in Fr. Goethal’s office.

Loyola alumnus and former Washington, DC, Mayor Tony Williams, 1969, provided access to a special afternoon tour of the US Supreme Court.

While on Capitol Hill, the Loyola group met with House Chaplain Jesuit Father Patrick Conroy who offered a personally guided custom daytime tour of two levels of the Capitol.  The indicators of a great Capitol tour are definitely the insider historical commentaries that some tour guides offer.  Fr. Conroy’s historical anecdotes on personalities, features and rooms in the Capitol demonstrated this skill quite well.

For further information on the Ignatian Solidarity Network and Family Teach In for Justice and Peace, use Google to reach the organization’s website for further program details and photos.  During the school year 2015/2016, this event will be open to twenty students from the classes of 206, 2017 and 2018.  Registration will start in September, 2015.  Contact Mr. Zeko at tzeko@loyolahs.edu for details and to reserve a place in the delegation.
