Ignite: ‘Supporting Loved Ones in the Midst of Suffering,’ Oct. 26

Ignite will welcome Dr. Michael Dante, director of the Faber Center for Ignatian Spirituality, to speak on “Supporting Loved Ones in the Midst of Suffering,” on Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Chapel of the Holy Family. 

Unfortunately, suffering is a regular part of our human experience. During tough moments in life, community and support from the communities to which we belong is especially important. How might one best accompany friends, roommates, family members and other loved ones who are experiencing suffering, illness or challenging times? 

Dante has served as the director of the Faber Center, the university’s spiritual and pastoral outreach to faculty and staff, for over ten years. Dante is an expert in Ignatian spirituality, a gifted spiritual director, and has significant experience supporting persons in a variety of pastoral settings. 

Ignite offers Marquette students an inspiring experience of college community, Catholic faith, and prayer truly welcoming all at Marquette. If you are looking to connect with new people, explore living a faith that does justice, try something new, or just be inspired, come to Ignite. 

No preregistration is required. For more information, contact Steve Blaha, assistant director of Campus Ministry.
