Loyola fraternity marks 90th anniversary
The Beggars Fraternity at Loyola University, the first social fraternity established on a Jesuit campus, will celebrate its 90th anniversary Friday, Oct. 25.
The fraternity was founded in 1923 after it received permission from the pope.
The name is a tribute to the founder of the Society of Jesus, St. Ignatius Loyola, who after departing from the shrine of the Madonna and Child at Montserrat, gave his clothes to a beggar.
There will be a beer stag at the Aline Street Beer Garden on Friday and a cocktail reception and dance at the Southern Yacht Club on Saturday to celebrate the anniversary. Members are encouraged to bring memorabilia to view.
