Biographical / Historical
Campus Ministry at Loyola has its origins in the single position of Chaplain. While there may have been a chaplain at Loyola in its early years, the first catalog that lists the position of Chaplain, Day College is in 1966-67. In 1968-69 the position changed to College Chaplain. In 1971-72 Eugene J. Ahern, S.J., became the Coordinator of Campus Ministry. The name changed to Campus Ministries in 1977-78, and the position of Director was assumed by Sr. M. Jeremy Daigler, R.S.M. In 1993-94 the name reverted back to the singular Campus Ministry and remains so to the present.
As of 2020 the Director of Campus Ministry is Seán Bray, who heads a staff of eight (including University Chaplain Jack Dennis, S.J.), with three graduate assistant staff and nineteen undergraduate student staff. From their pages on the Loyola website, Campus Ministry says it provides events and programs that “offer a variety of ways to worship, reflect, act for justice and build community.”
Again from their web pages, Campus Ministry says, “Wherever you are on your faith journey, Campus Ministry is here to help you explore who you are, strengthen your relationship with God and grow into who you are becoming. We hope that our presence will empower students to create a community, rooted in faith that is integrated into their daily lives through experience, discernment, and the promotion of justice. Go away for a weekend. Lead a retreat. Be a part of an immersion experience. Pray with friends at weekly liturgies. Enjoy music, good food, questions, and conversations with friends. All of this is part of Loyola's Campus Ministry.”
In addition to their student-related functions, Campus Ministry is also responsible for arranging and managing weddings and the rites of confirmation and infant baptism at Loyola’s chapel.
