History of the Loyola Chapel

The Loyola Chapel, in the F.C. Smith Building, dates back to 1933. When Loyola College graduate Father Francis C. Smith took his final vows of poverty within the Jesuit Order, a portion of his family inheritance went towards the construction of the chapel.

Since the creation of Concordia University in 1974 with the merger of Loyola College and Sir George Williams University, the chapel has been an ecumenical place of worship and the site of many different religious services and events. A revitalization process to further explore the breadth of groups and activities the Chapel can support as a sacred space happened in 2009.
