About Mission Integration
Loyola's office of mission integration seeks to foster a strong Jesuit identity and encourage personal transformative development among members of the community. The office is led by the assistant to the president for mission integration, Fr. Timothy Brown, S.J.
In this role, Fr. Brown coordinates the following efforts:
- develops programs to promote the Catholic and Jesuit nature of the University;
- introduces new members of the Loyola community to the spiritual, cultural, values and heritage of the University;
- offers individual and group opportunities for reflection, formation, and discussion about the integration of mission with one's daily life and work;
- facilitates conversation on Catholic intellectual life and Jesuit pedagogy through seminars and retreats;
- offers the Spiritual Exercises to all members of the Loyola University Maryland community to adhere to the Vision of the 35th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus.
Abide in the Heart of Christ offers accessible wisdom from the foundations of Jesuit spirituality - St. Ignatius Loyola's Spiritual Exercises. You can make a ten-day personal retreat in the midst of your daily life. This book will help you encounter Christ and grow in your relationship with him.
You can 'abide' in Christ's love each day [John 15:9]. This book brings together the writings of St. Ignatius, Gospel passages, and personal examples to help you "know Christ more, love him more, and serve him more."
Jesuits in Maryland
The Jesuits in Maryland and the Jesuit History videos
are the result of inspiration from a few great people that helped bring a vision to fruition.
For many years, I’ve been working on a variety of history projects as it relates to Maryland, Baltimore and history of the society of Jesus. I discovered such a rich legacy of many firsts that have helped shape society over many centuries. Therefore, I wanted to bring the story to life in a motion picture/visual form.
The Jesuits in Maryland video is a great story that speaks to the decision to express religious freedom in the new land of America. This story piqued my interest as an opportunity to dive further into history that began in Southern Maryland, but eventually grew into the development of a state and later, a liberated country.
Special thank you to Father Brown and Louise Finn for the opportunity to create and contribute to a great work of history, aiding in its transition from traditional print to a digital format that would engage a larger set of viewers. It was decided to tell the story in a condensed manner so that it would have appealing duration and content for a broader audience.
What you’re about to see spans a rich history that brings us to the reason we are here today. To celebrate Maryland Day. We hope you enjoy the video.
