Loyola's Jesuit Community

Jesuit SealThe Jesuit Community of Loyola University Maryland shares in the mission of the worldwide Society of Jesus. This mission includes the service of faith and the promotion of justice in dialogue with cultures and with other religions. These values characterize its commitment to the educational apostolate at the University and at Loyola Blakefield. 

We are a community of men with a rich variety of experience from the United States and from other countries and cultures. We are called to witness by our shared lives as vowed religious and priests to the love of Christ, drawing nourishment from the Eucharist and the inspiration of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and our Jesuit charism.

The principal apostolic commitments of the community are to Loyola University Maryland and its mission as a Catholic and Jesuit university and to Loyola Blakefield and its mission as a Catholic and Jesuit high school and middle school. In collaboration with colleagues, we are committed to inspiring students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world.

Community members are also engaged in various other ministries in parishes, religious communities, the Baltimore Archdiocese, the Maryland Province, and beyond.

The community is a place of hospitality for colleagues and students and other Jesuits.
