Loyola will greet its new and returning students during the annual Welcome Mass, set to take place on Sunday, Aug. 23 at 9 p.m.

The Mass will wrap up the Wolf Pack Welcome, a four-day program that kicks off the fall semester for new members of the Pack.

The Mass seeks to bring the Loyola community together, in accordance with the Jesuit identity.

Ken Weber, associate Chaplin of Liturgy and Music, said it is the university’s way of welcoming the new and returning students to what Loyola is all about.

“It is a joyful reunion for those returning and a joyful invitation to those celebrating for the first time,” said Weber.
