The Jamaican Experience

The Jamaican Experience is a faith-based immersion that seeks to invite the Loyola community to respond to the Gospel mandate to work for peace and justice in the world. The Jamaican Experience allows participants to learn about the lives of and to be in solidarity with people who have been socially, economically, and/or politically marginalized.

Annual JE Clothing Drive

  • Our annual "Clothes for a Cause" drive is October 14 - November 14, 2014. As the weather turns cooler, all members of the Loyola community are invited to donate their "gently used" summer clothing and footwear. 
  • Collection tables will be open on the Quad on October 15, 16, 17: 11am until 2pm. 
  • You may also drop off items directly in Campus Ministry (Cohn Hall) anytime during regular business hours (8:30am - 5pm) Monday-Friday, or bring your donations to any Sunday Mass.
  • For more information please contact George P. Miller, Associate Director of Campus Ministry at gmiller@loyola.edu or call the Campus Ministry office at (410) 617-2222.
  • Last year we sent over 40 cases of clothing to Jamaica. 
  • Thank you in advance for your generosity!
