Service Site: St. Paul’s Lutheran Church

In his own words: “With the Manresa Scholars, I hope to reinforce and deepen my ability to interact—both directly and indirectly—with others in a way that recognizes and supports their humanity, and to create and partake in relationships that can serve as examples of God’s love. I hope to gain a further understanding of myself, my capabilities, and my interests to guide my future decisions.”


Aaron Owen

Hometown: DeForest, WI
Major: Biomedical Sciences
Minor: Ethics
Service Site: Casa Romero Renewal Center

In his own words: “While I am still far from certain as to my vocation, my time at Marquette has provided me the opportunity and environment to challenge me to question deeply and engage my spiritual life more fully. I have almost as few answers now as when I began, but my new questions are bigger and better than I ever could have imagined. This is what excites me about the Manresa Scholars Program. It builds an intentional community where those questions are meant to be addressed, not shied away from.”
