Loyola Press is a publishing house based in Chicago, Illinois. It is a nonprofit apostolate of the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus.[3] It has no connection with Loyola University Chicago.

It primarily publishes school books for the parochial school market. However, in 1997, the press did publish a bestseller: The Gift of Peace, the last testament of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin.[4]

History of Loyola[edit]

Loyola University Press was founded in 1912 and became a separate non-profit in 1940 independent of any university. It changed its name to Loyola Press in 1995.


Loyola Press publishes Chicago-related titles under the Wild Onion imprint, Jesuit studies titles under the Jesuit Way banner, and textbooks under the Loyola University Press imprint.[5]
