Cura Faith Sharing Groups 

“We have all known the long loneliness

 and we have learned that the only solution is love,

 and that love comes with community.”

-Dorothy Day


Cura faith-sharing groups derive their name from the Jesuit value cura personalis. While this is commonly understood as meaning “care for the whole person,” we in Campus Ministry like to interpret this value as care for the individual, AS an individual- with all the experiences, identities, and complications that come along with being human. 


This year, we are introducing an affinity group within the Cura program for LGBTQIA+ identified students. This group will provide a space for students to explore and discuss the intersections of faith, gender, and sexual identities. 


Cura groups gather virtually each week to reflect and pray together, discussing topics most present in the lives of college students. Groups include 5-10 participants and are led by 1-2 student leaders.


If interested, please register here or email Emily Kane at eekane@loyola.edu.

IgnatianQ Conference

Join the Loyola delegation to the 2023 IgnatianQ conference! IgnatianQ brings together the community of LGBTQPIA+ folks (and allies) at Jesuit universities from across the U.S. As LGBTQPIA+ people, we believe that our own desire for social justice and the Jesuit values that inform our education are forces that can and should work together for a more just and humane world. As we explore the intersections of sexuality, gender, and spirituality together, we strive to educate and empower the whole person.
