Loyola University Maryland

Mission Week

Mission Week

Mission Week celebrates the University’s Jesuit and Maryland heritage from March 19-26, 2023. Mission Week calls the Loyola community to reflect, dialogue and engage more fully with the University’s mission. This year our theme is Caring for Our Common Home, Living into our Laudato Si’ commitment. As a Laudato Si’ university, we are committed to Responding to the Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor through fostering ecological economics, adopting sustainable lifestyles, fostering ecological education, fostering ecological spirituality, and building community resilience & empowerment. Join us as we celebrate with events and activities related to our Laudato Si’ goals and Loyola’s mission.
