What is the Faber Center?

The Faber Center for Ignatian Spirituality was adopted as a ministry of Marquette University in November 2005. Named after Blessed (now Saint) Peter Faber, S.J., who was among the first companions of St. Ignatius of Loyola and remembered for his expertise in directing the Spiritual Exercises, the Center is dedicated to providing Marquette's faculty and staff with support and guidance in leading a reflective life. Through retreats, reflection groups, a spiritual library and spiritual direction, faculty and staff are exposed to God’s transforming love. This experience can impact on their personal lives in significant ways, affecting their understanding of the heart of the mission and spiritual heritage of Marquette University. Interested faculty and staff can contact the Faber Center at fabercenter@marquette.edu or (414) 288-4545.
