Each year, Marquette University devotes a week to the exploration of its Catholic and Jesuit mission. Inspired by the words of Rev. Jerome Nadal, S.J., a close companion of St. Ignatius Loyola, the theme of Mission Week 2013 — The World is our Home — reflects the Catholic conviction that the spirit of God permeates every corner of creation, if only we have eyes and ears to recognize the gift. Father Nadal's sentiment distills into one succinct phrase the beauty and suffering that inhabit our world and calls us to live in deep solidarity with others.

As part of our celebration, we will be hosting a book drive to support Rev. Miranda's work. [Get Involved!]
