Wedding Ceremonies

For members of our University community, Catholic weddings can be performed in the University's Madonna Della Strada Chapel on the Lake Shore Campus, an officially designated sacred place. Wedding ceremonies on the Lake Shore Campus are exclusively allowed in the Madonna Della Strada Chapel, and ceremonies are restricted to direct Loyola affiliates (alumni, faculty, staff, etc).

University property and facilities are not available for other wedding ceremonies, whether civil or religious.

If you are interested in holding your Roman Catholic wedding ceremony at Loyola's Madonna Della Strada Chapel please contact the chapel at mds@luc.edu. Please note, either the bride or groom must have a direct affiliation with Loyola University Chicago and be Catholic in order to use the chapel. For more details, click here.
