LGBTQ and Allied Students

In following the call of Christ and giving witness to the love of God and the Church, Campus Ministry strives to meet the pastoral needs of students who identify as being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ+) or allies through the following resources:

Receiving the Sacraments

Students are encouraged to make use of the many sacramental offerings available on campus and in the Marquette area in their walk with the Lord Jesus.

Talking about Faith, Life, & Vocation

Meet with a campus minister to talk about your journey with God, what’s going on in your life, or to explore what God might be calling you to in life. Participate in the LGBTQ+ faith-sharing group Coming Out to God. All members of the campus ministry staff are available for these conversations. To set up a time to meet, call (414) 288-6873 or email a campus minister directly.

Pastoral Affirmation to LGBTQ+ Students, Allies, and Friends

With humility in the face of the suffering of our beloved, both LGBTQ+ people and Jesus himself, we commit to continuing to lift up the beauty and blessedness of LGBTQ+ people, building spaces for continued growth in faith and hope - trusting in the presence, guidance, and light of the Holy Spirit.

Exploring, Understanding, & Celebrating Catholic Faith
