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.
Prayer for the Ignatian Year
Loving God, open our minds and hearts as we join in the global celebration of the Ignatian Year. We remember the life changing moment when Ignatius was struck with a cannon ball and surrendered his life to God. We are grateful for his canonization when the Church recognized him as a saint, the author of the Spiritual Exercises, the founder of the Jesuits, the builder of schools and churches, and a collaborative partner in the mission of the Church.
Loving God, we ask for your grace during this Ignatian year that you transform our lives as you did for St. Ignatius. Let our faith permeate all we do and give us the vision to find God in all things. Let our hope bring life and light to others through our vocation as men and women for others. Let our love reach out not only to those who love us but to our most afflicted and broken brothers and sisters so that our love is manifested in deeds and not just words.
For your greater glory and honor . . . AMDG . . . Amen.
