Welcome to Faith at Marquette!

As one of the four pillars of Marquette’s Mission, Faith stands as the university’s way of orienting itself in the world. By virtue of what we believe as a Catholic, Jesuit university we aspire towards excellence, lead with vision, and serve in fidelity to the principles of justice and love. This page orients you to Marquette’s faith life as it provides resources for prayer, reflection, spiritual growth and an introduction to the Society of Jesus.

Peace Prayer by St. Francis of Assisi
Attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscans (1181–1226)

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace;
where there is hatred,
let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born
to eternal life.
