We provide an inclusive multi-purpose space that groups can book for social engagement, retreats, meetings, art shows, concerts, theatre productions, wellness programs, prayer, meditation, yoga, reflection, weddings and memorials.
When not in use, the chapel is available for study, relaxation, socialization, meditation or prayer. Meditation cushions and mats are available. We also have a piano and organ that can be used by students and organists.
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.
The Loyola Chapel is accessible by stairs at the front entrance of the Chapel; stair-free access for people using wheelchairs or other mobility devices is possible through the AD building, please contact us or speak to a security agent for instructions.
The washroom is gender-neutral; accessible washrooms are located at AD-128. Service animals are allowed on site.
The staff are happy to meet students and others at more accessible places on campus or via Zoom on request.
