Spiritual Formation

Office of Mission and Ministry

The Office of Mission & Ministry at Loyola University New Orleans seeks to foster the Jesuit and Catholic mission and identity of the institution and educate the Loyola community of its Jesuit/Catholic identity and heritage.   We minister to the Loyola University community by attending to the spiritual formation of the university community, and responding to the pastoral needs of students, faculty and staff.  In collaboration with student leaders, staff, faculty, and administrators, we seek to promote a vision of the "way of proceeding" set forth by St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.  Embracing our common human dignity created in God’s image and likeness, we foster a greater respect for the truth, goodness, and grace to be found in a diversity of faith traditions and people of every culture, race, language, and economic status.
Our Christian, Catholic, and Jesuit traditions commission us to offer a welcoming environment and supportive services to all members of the university community. We assist the formation of our community members to be contemplatives-in-action;  God’s spirit illuminating them with an ever deeper experience of the love of God and inspiring a more generous response to that love by their passionate commitment to service and justice as men and women with and for others.
