Resources for Alumni: Spirituality and Service

RETREATS:    When was the last time you took a day to be quiet, reflect, and pray on what really matters?  If it’s been a while, the University Chaplain and the Alumni Spirituality committee can suggest opportunities to explore your faith and spiritulity.    For information on retreats, please contact the University Chaplain at


  • On-Line RETREAT during Lent:   An online retreat is offered throughout Lent by the Office of Mission & Ministry.   This year the retreat was based on reflections from Laudato Si.  Pope Francis reminds us that "To sense each creature singing the hymn of its existence is to live joyfully in God’s love and hope.”  Retreat reflections are emailed daily to all who register.  All are welcome to join the Loyola University New Orleans community in this retreat.  Watch this page to learn more of the online Lenten Retreat in Daily Life for Lent 2018.  

  • The New Orleans Archdiocese and local retreat houses offer retreats regularly and there are many other activities available to our local loyola alumni. For more information, click HERE >>>
