Morning Prayer

Seniors take turns leading the student body each day in morning prayer.

Daily Examen

St. Ignatius believed that he received a gift from God that not only enriched his own Christian life but was meant to be shared with others. The gift was a "method," a way to seek and find God in all things and to gain the freedom to let God's will be done on earth. This way of praying allowed Ignatius to discover the voice of God within his own heart and to experience a growth in familiarity with God's will. Jesuits call this prayer their daily examen of consciousness.

At midday, students, faculty and staff, stop to pray the examen. This is a prayer where we try to find the movement of the Spirit in our daily lives as we reflect on our day. Through this method of praying students can grow in a sense of self and the Source of self, and become more sensitive to their own spirit with its longings, its powers, its Source. They will develop an openness to receive the supports that God offers.


Students may attend morning liturgy (7:20 a.m. daily) or Thursday afternoon liturgies. All students are required to attend All-School liturgies, which include the traditional Jesuit Mass of the Holy Spirit and special Church holidays.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at the beginning of the school year, during Advent and Lent, as part of Marquette High's retreat program and upon request in the Pastoral Center.

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
