It is with great sadness that we share the news that Cheverus alumnus Zeb Leavitt '18 died tragically in a one car crash on Sunday morning in Gorham. Please keep his family, including his mother Anne Leavitt and his father, former Cheverus Music department faculty member, Peter Stickney in your prayers. 

A standout student-athlete, talented musician, campus minister and Kairos retreat leader, Zeb embodied the loyalty and spirit of a Cheverian.

A prayer service for students, faculty, staff, and coaches was held at Loyola Chapel yesterday afternoon. We will share information regarding arrangements when available. 

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

On December 8, The Most Reverend Robert P. Deeley,  J.C.D. was on campus to celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception Mass in Loyola Chapel.  This Mass was very special to the Cheverus community, as two of our seniors received the Sacrament of Confirmation after completing the R.C.I.A program with Campus Ministry. 

One of the ways that we embody our Catholic Jesuit heritage is by making Cheverus a home for families of all faith traditions. Many students who join us are unfamiliar with any faith experience; we accompany our students on a journey to lead a life of meaning, belonging and purpose, and to discover the faith experience that is best for them.
