Weddings at Loyola University Maryland


We at Loyola Campus Ministry welcome you as you begin your preparation for the celebration of your marriage. As you start planning for this most special event, please be aware of the guidelines and procedures outlined below.

Alumni Memorial Chapel on Loyola’s Evergreen Campus is a popular place for Loyola alumni and friends to celebrate the sacrament of marriage. To reserve Alumni Memorial Chapel for a Wedding, couples must have an affiliation with Loyola:

  • The bride or groom must be a current student or graduate of the university;
  • The bride or groom must be a current employee of the university or a son or daughter of a current employee;
  • The bride is an alumna of Mount Saint Agnes College; or
  • The bride or groom is the son or daughter of a Loyola or Mount Saint Agnes graduate.

The most important guideline to understand is that the Loyola Alumni Memorial Chapel is a Catholic church within the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Therefore, if either the bride or groom is Catholic, the couple must follow all the wedding procedures of the Catholic Church. In order for a wedding to occur here we must ask approval from the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Without this approval the wedding cannot occur in our Chapel. Be sure to discuss all of the requirements with your priest and be sure you can meet them. In particular, if either party has been married before, this must be discussed with the priest before you confirm your reservation. The priest will advise you if your time frame is reasonable. We will be happy to work with you to find a later date, if necessary.

Throughout your preparation process, please do not hesitate to contact the Wedding Coordinator with any questions.
