Loyola University Chicago

Arrupe College

Spirituality Programs

As members of the Loyola University Chicago community, Arrupe students are invited to explore the rich spiritual tradition of the Society of Jesus and to become men and women for and with others.

Students at Arrupe have the opportunity to attend spiritual retreats in both the first and second year of their program to explore their spiritual lives and grow in deeper faith and hope.

  • The first-year retreat focuses on the founder of the Jesuits (St. Ignatius of Loyola) and the namesake of Arrupe College (Pedro Arrupe), and invites students to consider how they can use their greatest gifts and talents for the betterment of humanity.
  • The second-year retreat, called UNWRITTEN, was developed by LUC Campus Ministry and helps students ask the questions, “what story am I telling with my life,” and “what story do I want to tell?”

In addition to retreat programs, Arrupe College offers opportunities for prayer and worship throughout the year, and students can engage Campus Ministry at the Lakeshore Campus for access to other spirituality programs.
