St. Louis U. High’s religious identity is one of the school’s most prominent features. The AMDG of the Society of Jesus’s Latin motto, Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam—“For the greater glory of God”—is cut into stone over both the Oakland and Berthold entrances. Since the building of the Backer Memorial in 1924, the chapel has been located symbolically at the heart of the school. SLUH can claim nearly two centuries of Jesuit heritage, which the building’s facade proudly displays. The religious and spiritual character of the living student body is much less easy to measure and determine. How do SLUH students view Catholicism, and how has SLUH affected them?
