Mass of the Holy Spirit

Date: Thursday, September 8, 2016
Time: 11:30 a.m.
Location: Holy Name of Jesus Church

Presiding at the 2016 Mass of the Holy Spirit is University President Father Kevin W. Wildes, S.J..  Giving the homily will be the Reverend Gregory Waldrop, S.J., Ph.D., visiting assistant professor of art history and chair of the Loyola University New Orleans Department ofArt.

Most Catholic schools, and especially Jesuit high schools and universities, celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the beginning of every school year. It is a tradition almost as old as the Society of Jesus itself, going back to the first Jesuit school in Messina, Sicily in 1548.

All 11:00 a.m. classes are cancelled so that the entire Loyola community may attend.
