Mothers' Guild

What is the Mothers' Guild?

Founded over 80 years ago, the Mothers’ Guild is one of the parent volunteer groups at Loyola High School. The Executive members organize events to benefit Loyola students, the school and the community.

Our Mission

The mandate of the Mothers' Guild is to raise money for the Loyola High School Bursary Fund. This fund is set up to provide deserving students with the financial assistance needed for them to attend Loyola.

  • The Mothers' Guild donated $85,000 to the bursary fund in 2019.
