Faith & Service

Faith & Service

At Marquette High, the faith development of all students is encouraged and guided through a program of individual and group activities - academic and experiential. As a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, Ignatian Spirituality, a spirituality for everyday life, guides students in their faith development.

Our theology curriculum, a dynamic retreat program, expansive community service opportunities, sacramental life and prayer groups also help shape the faith experience of students.


Year of Mercy

December 8, 2015–November 20, 2016

Year of Mercy

Pope Francis has declared an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This Holy Year of Mercy began December 8, 2015, the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council. It will close November 20, 2016, the Feast of Christ the King. This year’s motto is “Merciful Like the Father.”

Sometimes, when we think of the word mercy, we picture someone throwing themselves on their knees before a cruel villain, pleading to be spared some punishment. This is not our understanding of God’s mercy. We do not ask for God’s mercy because we are afraid of incurring his wrath as punishment for our sins. Rather, when we call on God to have mercy, we are calling on God in the only way we know him—as one who responds with compassion to those in need. When we show mercy to others, we are responding as God responds, with compassion. (Courtesy of Loyola Press)

A Prayer for Generosity

Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve.
To give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to ask for the rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of the knowledge that
I am doing your will. Amen.

St. Ignatius Loyola
