Daily Events

  • Jesuit Heritage Days
  • The education apostolate, or work, is a very important one for the Society of Jesus. In 1896, Loyola College was established as an English-language, Classical College along the traditional lines of the Classical Course programme: the first four years being the “High School Course” and the following four years, the “Collegiate Course”. In 1964, the Loyola High School Corporation was established to run the high school separately from the college. In 1992, the High School moved to its current location. While the number of Jesuits at the school has dropped over the years, the accomplishments and achievements of the Jesuits can be seen and felt throughout the building. The “Tower of Merit” is dedicated to Fr. Winston Rye, President of the School from 1988 to 1994. He oversaw the building of the new school here at 7272 Sherbrooke West. The “Breslin Library” honours Fr. Francis M. Breslin who taught at Loyola for thirty-five years (from 1930 - 1965) and who was the librarian for many of those years. The “Casey Lounge” is named for Fr. Kenneth Casey, principal from 1956 to 1975. In the midst of trying times, he kept Loyola High School “secure, strong, and deeply committed to its Jesuit principles and to its Catholic faith.” (Gavin, 51) The “Eric Maclean S.J. Centre for the Performing Arts” honours Fr. Eric Maclean, student, teacher, chaplain, principal and president of Loyola. It was during his second stint as president that our magnificent auditorium was constructed in 2005. This Jesuit moment would not be complete without the mention of an outstanding lay teacher, Edmund (Ed) R. Meagher. He entered the Junior Preparatory class in 1936 and began what would be a fifty-five year association with Loyola as student, athlete, teacher, coach, administrator and Director of the Alumni Association. The Concordia rink is named after him, as are the playing fields on the lower campus. Loyola has produced, produces and will continue to produce outstanding individuals --- individuals who have changed, are changing and will change our world. Loyola High School, along with its sister high schools, St. Paul’s in Winnipeg, Collège Charles Garnier in Québec City, and St. Bonaventure, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, as well as the younger Jesuit middle schools of Mother Theresa in Regina and St. Ignatius School in Winnipeg, are all a part of this very special apostolate and part of the worldwide network of Jesuit educational institutions. According to the Secretariat for Secondary and Pre-Secondary Education, in North America alone, there are 54,785 students, 188 Jesuits and 3,812 lay faculty in the 83 North American Jesuit schools. In Latin America, there are 92 Jesuit schools; In Europe 162, Africa 37, East Asia 36, and in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, 403. World-wide, there are over 16,000 Jesuit priests, brothers, scholastics and novices. There are a handful of small Jesuit colleges in Canada, and more than 25 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States.

Sports Announcements

  • Juvenile Soccer
  • The Juvenile Soccer Coaches would like to thank the entire Team for their amazing effort this year. They say that the true character of a person is revealed in the challenging times and this team faced many challenges from the very start of the year. However, never did this team make excuses but rather they relied on one another and gave it their all, each and every game, no matter the situation. Yesterday they ended their season with a game against division leaders John Rennie who would secure home field advantage with a victory. With the Warriors down 3-1, with only minutes left in the game and their season, the team stayed true to their character, persevered and continued to play as a band of brothers and were rewarded with two quick goals and a shocking 3-3 final score. Coaches could not be more proud. A special thank you to all those players who sacrificed their preferred positions for the betterment of the team, to the players who played Loyola Soccer for the past five years, to those who previously never played for the school before and finally to those underage players who responded to the call and challenged themselves at the highest level. Finally, the team would like to wish all of the other Loyola Soccer Teams the best of luck in the rest of their season.
