Holy Name of Jesus Church sits under a cloud of fog on May 17, 2020. President Tania Tetlow announced May 20 that the university will resume on-campus classes in August despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Office of Mission and Identity welcomes prayer requests to be sent throughout campus via email to build a community of prayer and support. The following have requested support from the Loyola students, staff, and faculty:

Scott Zimmerman, a graduate student, as he continues treatment for cancer.
Xavier Cole, University President, due to his sister-in-law Teri experiencing a recurrence of brain cancer.
A Loyola staff member, as the husband of a close friend, who had been a member of the unhoused community and is an advocate for justice, passed away suddenly in his sleep.
Martha Alguera, Communications Coordinator in the College of Music and Media, was recently diagnosed with lupus.
Gail Reynolds’, Administrative Assistant to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, close cousin, Charlene Berry, has been battling breast cancer for 10 years and has received another setback in treatment.
Professor Mehmet Dicle in the College of Business, as his wife Betul is in the ICU for treatment of recurrent brain cancer.
Marty Braud-Mason’s, Loyola’s Chemical Hygiene Officer, sister, Kelly, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Kelly’s daughter Rebekah suffers from an autoimmune disease that required serious intestinal surgery and will require more surgery in the future.
