In 1999, we moved from Xavier Hall on the main campus to our present residence at Lone Mountain.
Father Tom Lucas served as the liaison for the construction of Loyola House. The new Jesuit residence at the University of San Francisco is named Loyola House after Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits (properly titled the Society of Jesus). It provides housing for many of the Jesuits working at USF, plus guest rooms. Its Chapel of Our Lady of Montserrat recalls the shrine of the Madonna with the Child Jesus in the Benedictine Monastery near Barcelona where Ignatius committed himself to the service of Jesus as his King and Lord. The chapel windows depict the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius. The building itself is in the style of a Tuscan villa, complete with a fruit tree garden and fountain. The house offers magnificent views of the City and San Francisco Bay.
