Each of these free events will take place on Loyola’s main campus at 7 p.m.

2012 Lenten Series schedule:

The entire Loyola community is also invited to attend the Gregorian Chant Laetare Mass on Sunday, March, 18 at 7:30 p.m. in Holy Name of Jesus Church. Co-sponsored by the College of Music and Fine Arts, this Mass in the Latin rite will be celebrated during Lent.

“Experiencing the Eucharistic celebration in the Latin rite, which may not be as familiar to most, is a way to further enrich our Lenten observation. This Eucharistic celebration with Gregorian Chant also allows the community to experience a spirituality that has been a part of the tradition of our faith over the centuries,” said the Rev. Ted Dziak, S.J., director of the Jesuit Center.
