We are a community of pilgrims, ecclesial ministers and students alike, responding to the Good News of Jesus as joyful stewards of all God’s creation. Rooted in the Catholic tradition and inspired by the life and charism of St. Ignatius of Loyola, we work to meet the diverse spiritual needs and interests of Marquette University’s campus community. We serve with colleagues in the Office of Mission and Ministry, the Faber Center for Ignatian Spirituality, the Division of Student Affairs, the Society of Jesus, and faculty to engage the dialogue of faith.
The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking empowers the university and the wider community to explore together the necessary skills to become informed, spiritually-centered, nonviolent peacemakers. Rooted in the Ignatian charism, the center fosters an awakening to the holistic relationship of scholarship, spirituality, nonviolent living, and the active struggle for peace and justice.
Established in 2006, the Faber Center was created for the purpose of promoting Ignatian spirituality among faculty and staff. Additionally, the Faber Center serves as a resource for all in the community of Marquette who wish to explore and deepen their spiritual life and practice, articulate theological and religious beliefs and questions, discern personal and professional paths, and find sacred and holy meaning in their lives.
The vocation journey of the teacher/scholar is challenging yet filled with opportunities. Manresa for Faculty supports faculty members on the various steps of their careers in a Catholic, Jesuit University. Manresa (Man-ree-suh) is a town in Spain where St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, spent a year in prayer and discernment about the future direction of his own vocation path.
By promoting opportunities for reflection, attentiveness and action, the office encourages faculty and staff of every faith to see their work as part of a larger effort to serve the common good and explore the various ways in which faith and justice are at the very heart of a Marquette’s education.
