Loyola Jesuits invite community to join them live on Facebook for Sunday Mass
| By Molly Robey
Update: Weekly Sunday Masses will be livestreamed until further notice.
Rev. Jack Dennis, S.J., university chaplain, and Rev. Timothy Brown, S.J., associate professor of law and social responsibility, are inviting members of the community to join them virtually as they preside over Sunday Mass. The Office of Campus Ministry will livestream the Mass on Sunday, March 29, 2020, at 6 p.m. via its Facebook page and intends to make the Mass available during the coronavirus crisis.
During this time of social distancing when the faithful are not able to attend Mass in person, Fr. Dennis and Fr. Brown hope to connect students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators, and other friends of Loyola in prayer.
“We are still a community of faith, regardless of the unforeseen circumstances in which we are now living,” said Fr. Dennis. “The holy Eucharist is at the center of our Catholic tradition, and who better to share it with than the community in which we live, love, and work. It’s a privilege to hopefully be a comforting presence to our students, their families, alumni, employees, and everyone who joins us.”
Fr. Brown, who also oversees Loyola’s office of mission integration, will serve as the homilist on Sunday.
The livestream for the Mass will begin at 6 p.m. Sunday, March 29, on the Campus Ministry Facebook page.
