Tuesday’s Mission Week meditation and schedule

Formation of Hearts and Minds


But God’s strength surrounds us always.
It readies us to step forward into the future.
It shows us hope and allows us to dream.


Hebrews 4:16 “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find help.”

Tuesday, February 8

  • Examen with Fr. Jim Voiss, S.J. and President Michael Lovell | 4 p.m. on the Mission at Marquette Instagram, @mumissionandministry
    • One of the most famous prayers St. Ignatius developed was the Examen. In this practice, we have the opportunity to take time in thankful reflection to be with God and review our day. When we pause in prayer and reflection, we open ourselves to the possibilities of tomorrow. Join members of the Marquette community each day on Mission at Marquette Instagram during Mission Week.
  • Mass | 10 p.m. in the St. Joan of Arc Chapel

Wednesday, February 9

  • “One Thing Led to Another” | 9 – 10:30 a.m., virtual

  • Open to Possibility Discernment Lab | 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
    • To know how to move forward, we need to know why and how we got where we are, to the best of our ability. During this one-hour session, Dr. Elizabeth Angeli, Associate Professor in the Department of English, and Serina Jamison, Graduate Student, will help lead you to create a discernment map that visually represents the decisions you made that brought you to who you are today and the people, places, and things that informed those decisions.
    • Register Here
  • Global Jesuit Exhibit and Luncheon Takeout | 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union, 2nd Floor Lobby
    • While St. Ignatius of Loyola was a son of Spain, his founding of the Society of Jesus has led to the religious order sustaining ministries around the world. During Mission Week, visit an exhibit with interviews of Jesuits at Marquette. These features include those from other countries and Jesuits at Marquette University who have taken part in global ministries.
    • Each weekday of Mission Week will feature a different country with a FREE takeout lunch to the first 150 participants.
  • Soup with Substance | 12 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union and offered virtually
    • Inspired by the “roundtable discussions” of Peter Maurin and the Catholic Worker Movement, Soup with Substance is a noontime presentation on an issue related to social justice over a simple meal of soup and bread.
    • During this week of possibility, we will be joined by Nancy Yarbrough, founder of FreshStart, and Sister Anne Arabome, SSS, founder of the Bakhita Project.  Their stories are very different, but both Nancy and Sister Anne have answered the call to work with victims of human trafficking.

Mass | 12 p.m. in the St. Joan of Arc Chapel
