Loyola High School, as a Jesuit high school, places a strong emphasis on the spiritual life of the school. Fr. Joe Mróz, S.J. is our Chapain, Jesuit priests at Loyola also include our president Fr Murray SJ, Fr. Rob Brennan, S.J., and Fr. Gerry Mathieu '52, S.J., a long-time member of the Loyola family. This year we are blessed to have with us Mr Jason Vaz SJ. Mr Vaz is a Scholastic, which means a Jesuit who has pronounced his vows and is in training to become a priest. We have fuller information at http://moodle.loyola.ca/course/view.php?id=263
In addition to the grade level retreats and Kairos, the Chaplaincy also provides Eucharistic celebrations throughout the year. First, there is daily mass from Monday to Friday in Our Lady’s Chapel (the student chapel located on the third floor) at 7:45am (Wednesday in TAG 1, and Fridays in Advent and Lent in TAG 1). All students, faculty and parents are welcome and encouraged to take part in this time of prayer and reflection. In keeping with a long Jesuit tradition, the school year begins with a Mass of the Holy Spirit. Here we call on the Spirit to guide all of us and all of our works to God during the coming academic year. In late September (the Canadian date) we celebrate a mass dedicated to the Canadian (North American) Martyrs: St. Jean de Brebeuf and Companions of Ste. Marie Among the Hurons. Other celebrations include: the Advent and Lent penance services, Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, a family Communion "Communion Breakfast" on the first Sunday of May, a closing Mass for all students and staff and the Graduation mass for the Graduandi and their families and guests immediately prior to the graduation ceremonies. Other impromptu masses are also celebrated for sports teams upon request of the coaches. A general invitation is extended to all members of the Loyola family to request that prayers and Masses be offered for special intentions.
