Wednesday’s Mission Week meditation and schedule

Formation of Hearts and Minds


God’s strength carves paths for us to follow that we never expected, and yet are greater than we imagined.


Jerimiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

  • Daily Examen with Fr. Jim Voiss, S.J. and Sheena Carey | 4 p.m. on the Mission at Marquette Instagram, @mumissionandministry
