Campus Ministry exists to serve the spiritual needs of the student population of Loyola High School.
Mass is celebrated in the Clougherty Chapel of St. Ignatius every school day at 7:15 a.m. In addition, the school community comes together to celebrate Eucharist that has been prepared by the Student and Faculty Liturgy Team. Students are invited to participate in liturgical ministries and choir.
Retreat opportunities are an integral component of a Loyola education, and therefore all students are encouraged to participate in a retreat every year: First Year Overnight Retreat; Sophomore Day of Prayer; Junior Leadership Retreat; Junior Kairos; Senior Kairos; Senior Quiet Retreat.
During the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent, Campus Ministry offers a communal celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation including an opportunity for individual confessions.
Easy access to daily examens, morning prayers and more from Loyola Campus Ministry in collaboration with the Office for Mission.

The Big Brother Program welcomes new students to the Loyola community, starting with Freshman Orientation and the Freshmen Retreat. The goals of this program include introducing first-year students to the traditions of Loyola; helping to create a sense of class identity and giving first-year students the opportunity to get to know their fellow Cub brothers; and emphasizing the importance of religious activities as central to the character of a Loyola education and essential in deepening a relationship with God and becoming a Man for Others.
