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.


O God,
You have a heart that loves without limits.
Therefore, we reach out to Your heart and ask You to deepen the love within us,
By sending Your Spirit to ignite our hearts.

Ignite our hearts with a love for Marquette High.
Help us to experience the joy present in this community of faith and scholarship.
Fill our days with laughter, learning and a brotherly love for one another.
Give us a deeper love for being Hilltoppers in all that we do.

Ignite our hearts with a love for our City.
Help us to know and love our neighbors.
Let our love surge beyond this campus and flow into the streets of Merrill Park.
Forge connections between here and the communities where we reside.

Ignite our hearts with a love for our Common Home.
Teach us to see the universe as Your gift to us.
Fill us with awe. Stir us with wonder.
Move us to be Your hands and feet in caring for Your Creation.

Ignite our hearts with a love for You, our God.
Help us to come to know and believe the love You have for us.
Give us the grace to see Your presence in all things.
May we respond to your love by praising, honoring, and serving You.

O God, we turn to ask You to give us hearts burning with love.
We pray that we may lead lives that set the world on fire.
O God, ignite our hearts.

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
