As a Jesuit institution, Loyola welcomes a diverse religious population including a variety of the Christian denominations, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Loyola invites all students to actively engage and explore their own religious traditions/ spiritual identities. There are a number of places of worship a short distance from Loyola's campus where students can expand their community to foster a deeper sense of self and Others. If you need assistance connecting with one of these communities, please contact Elise Gower, elgower@loyola.edu or 410-617-5375.
