Spiritual Life


To the preacher who kept saying, ‘We must put God in our lives,’ the Master said, ‘God is already there. Our business is to recognize this”.

- Anthony de Mello, S.J.

One of the hallmarks of Jesuit Education is the holistic formation it affords a child providing for the intellectual, emotional, social, psychological, and spiritual needs of a child. At Loyola Jesuit College, LJC, the spiritual formation of our students is profound as it is thorough, reflecting the motto of the College, Service of God and Others. A typical day in the Den is punctuated with activities designed to orient members of the College community, staff and students alike, toward God in whom we live, and move and have our being.

Some of these activities are as follows: Morning and Night prayer, Celebration of the Holy Mass, Grace before and after meals, and the Daily Examen. Although deeply rooted in the Roman Catholic heritage and in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, LJC respects the diverse religious faiths and traditions of individual members of the College. Indeed, the goal of spiritual formation at LJC is to deepen faith through well-established relationship with God. Hence, no matter a person’s religious faith or tradition, there’s something for him/her at LJC.
