Easter Message

April 8, 2009

Dear Loyolans,

During this holy time of the year, as Christians celebrate Easter and our Jewish brothers and sisters begin their observance of Passover, we pause with our family and friends to gather in prayer, thanking God for the gift of new life and salvation.

For us Christians, the resurrection of Christ is our hope. It reminds us that our life here on earth and our work at Loyola are not the end, but a means of praising God in His goodness.

In this spirit of thankfulness and praise, I wish you and your families a blessed Easter and Passover.


Michael J. Garanzini, S.J.
