Mass of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
Students, faculty, and staff gathered to celebrate a beautiful Mass to honor the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception on Thursday, December 8, in the West Gym. In his homily, Loyola Academy President Rev. Gregory J. Ostdiek, SJ, reminded Ramblers to make time this Christmas season to enjoy the many gifts from God.
Performing holiday favorites at two-sold out shows on Friday, December 2, and Saturday, December 3, were Loyola Academy's band ensemble, symphony orchestra, guitar ensemble, honors orchestra, concert choir, contemporary vocal ensemble, chorale, and honors chamber ensemble. The groups delighted audiences with popular Christmas tunes such as "Carol of the Bells," "Silent Night," and "The Little Drummer Boy."

The holidays are fast and approaching, and Campus Ministry spent the last few weeks organizing the annual Gonzaga Christmas Drive! The drive seeks to emulate the life and service of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, SJ, who worked with the poor and afflicted in Italy during the 16th century. Loyola hosted its first drive in 2010, and it has since become an important holiday tradition at the Academy.
