The Chapel Series is sponsored by the Office of the President of Loyola University Chicago and the Office of Mission and Ministry. “While there has been ample exposure of the flaws and failings of the Catholic Church, we are convinced all of us need to be reminded of God’s promises and called to renew our faithful commitment,” said Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., Loyola’s President.
