Spiritual Life

Campus Spiritual Life and Campus Ministry serve the entire Loras community by reminding us that each of us are spiritual beings and we need to pay attention to our spiritual life—no matter where we are on our faith journey.

Spiritual Life at Loras College invites personal transformation through a deeper understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This becomes the lens through which we view our baptismal call, our personal giftedness, and our relationships. This view strives for inclusivity and commitment to growth through the mutual challenge and support of community. The context of Spiritual Life at Loras emphasizes openness to the widest possible expression of our faith tradition: our vision of church (ecclesiology), our personal relationship with God (spirituality), our understanding and articulation of the teachings of the Church (theology), and our service to the world ( ministry).

Loras College is a Catholic, diocesan college explicitly oriented to promote service of both church and world through encouraging all members of the community in development of their "diverse professional, social, and religious roles." We strive to assert the following principles:

  • promote an open atmosphere of critical inquiry and academic conversation that includes varied voices, past and present, across Catholic and other traditions.
  • reverence the spirituality of each person.
  • recognize the importance of personal and communal worship.
  • welcome the responsibility to serve.
  • advocate respect for diversity.
