As members of the Body of Christ, the Loyola Blakefield community is called to actively and consciously participate in the liturgies of the Church through our presence, ritual action, prayer, silence and song. Ignatian Spirituality teaches us that we’re created “to praise, reverence, and serve God.” This is made easier when we acknowledge and experience the importance of prayer and the sacraments in our lives. Students, Faculty, and Staff gather once a month to celebrate liturgy as a united community of Faith. Each afternoon, our community pauses its work to show gratitude for the day’s blessings by praying the Examen.
COVID-19 UPDATE:We normally offer daily Mass at 7:20 AM in the Our Lady of Montserrat Chapel, but due to restrictions on gatherings, our School Chaplain Fr. Bruce Steggert, SJ, is now offering Mass virtually on A & B days, while our Campus Minister Ms. Laura McCormack will be offering a Liturgy of the Word service featuring reflections from members of our Loyola community on C & D days via our Campus Ministry YouTube Channel. You may also view these offerings, along with our virtual Daily Examen, below.
Participate in Our Daily Examen
The Daily Examen is an opportunity for peaceful reflective prayer and to find the movement of God in all people and events in your day. The Examen is a set of introspective prompts for you to follow and adapt to your own character and spirit. Our Office of Campus Ministry provides a Virtual Daily Examen for our students, faculty, and staff every A–D Day at 2:15 p.m. The Virtual Examen is also posted to our Campus Ministry YouTube Channel, or can be accessed via the YouTube playlist below. We invite you to join us!
