Who was St. Ignatius?  What was his faith journey like? What is his spirituality about?  If you are interested in learning more about Ignatian Spirituality or want to deepen your knowledge, join fellow faculty and staff as we encounter St. Ignatius and come to appreciate his contributions to spirituality.  It will be a time to learn, discuss, and reflect on Ignatian Spirituality.  A light lunch will be served.


Making good decisions is challenging.  We are pressured by time, don’t know all the facts, and are uncertain of the outcomes. Please join us to learn more about the Ignatian approach to good deciions.  We will discuss Jesuit Fr. Mark Thibodeaux’s book, God’s Voice Within: Finding God’s Will.  James Muraski, Instructor from the College of Business Administration, and Michael Dante, Director of the Faber Center, will facilitate this discussion group to further break open the decision making process in light of an Ignatian approach.  Register by Wednesday, September 10 at 288-4545 or FaberCenter@marquette.edu A light breakfast  will be served. 



Thinking about retirement doesn’t have to be scary! However, making the transition from the work environment to retirement can provide many challenges, but opportunities as well. Questions of meaning, uncertainty and purpose start coming forward. This change affects how

we see ourselves and how we relate to others. Whether you have already made the decision to retire or are just considering retirement in the near future, please join us for this lunch time conversation to discuss some thoughtful and spiritual ways of addressing this transition. A light lunch will be served. Space is limited. Register by Wednesday, October 29, at 288-4545 or FaberCenter@marquette.edu.

During this season of prayer, we invite you to join fellow faculty and staff for a lunch time Bible study group.  Opening up the scriptures in the context of community enriches our understanding of the text and furthers our faith journey.  This will be a time to read, study, and reflect on how we will respond to this same love which has been given to each of us.  Register by Monday, November 17at 288-4545 or FaberCenter@marquette.edu.  A light lunch will be served.



We invite all members of the Marquette University community to join with the community at Repairers of the Breach - a day shelter run by and for the homeless of Milwaukee - for a light lunch, prayer and reflection.  This informal gathering provides time for sharing good conversation and food for body and soul with our neighbors at Repairers as we are led in the African process method of reflecting on scripture. All faith traditions are welcome.

Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius

The exercises are a pathway to recognizing God's activity in our deepest desires and growing in unity with God. Emerging from the experience of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, the Exercises provide a structured opportunity to mature in spiritual freedom and make choices that are responsive to God's call in one's life.
