Marquette Contemplative Community

Welcome to the web home of the Marquette Contemplative Community (MCC)!

We are here to support the contemplative interests of the Marquette community. There is growing interest in contemplative practice and study at Marquette, and the Milwaukee Contemplative Community has organized to make opportunities more generally available to faculty, students, administrators, and staff.

The MCC was awarded the Edward D. Simmons Religious Commitment Grant for 2011/12 to further these interests. With the help of this support we are initiating weekly contemplative sessions for the Marquette community and are also planning a speaker series to support the practice.
