Sustainability, Singing, and the Simple Pleasures of Community


Community Holiday Party Invitation

Mar‎k your calendars! The date for this year’s Community Holiday Party is set for Wednesday, December 19th, from 5:30pm-8:30pm in the beautifully restored Mundelein Center for the Fine and Performing Arts. 

President Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., staff and faculty of Loyola University Chicago invite our neighbors to celebrate the holidays in a tradition of music, art, charity and community.

‎Historically this occasion is an unforgettable evening for the Loyola community to come together with our neighbors, community partners and local organizations, not only to raise a glass in “cheers” but to also gather vital food and canned goods to support area food pantries.  This year will be no different.

The theme of our party will adhere to Loyola University’s commitment to sustainability. We will be serving locally sourced, eco-friendly catering, providing reusable dishes and flatware, as well as ample recycling and composting receptacles.

It is not a party without music and singing! Featured at this year’s event are the Northside Catholic Academy Children's Choir, Prospect High School's Madrigal Singers, and Loyola University's Gospel Choir. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to celebrate with the friendly faces of the Loyola, Rogers Park, and Edgewater communities.

The campus parking structure will be open for free parking at 5pm.
