Interfaith Ministries

Interfaith Ministry at Loyola is designed to support the spiritual growth of students from many faith backgrounds and to educate students about diverse faith traditions. Through partnerships with faith organizations in the Greater New Orleans area, our students and staff develop individual and ongoing programming that meets these ministry needs.
