Ignite Bistro Night on ‘Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People,’ Nov. 16

Join Ignite at Ignite Bistro Night for a free dinner and lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the AMU Lunda Room.  

Rev. John Thiede, S.J., associate vice provost and associate professor of theology in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, will explore “Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People.” The night will commemorate the El Salvador Martyrs — Jesuits serving the University of Central America, their housekeeper and her daughter — who were murdered in 1989 in San Salvador because of their advocacy for the poor. 

We all experience struggles in life. Sometimes our struggles and suffering make no sense.  Ignite offers Marquette students an inspiring experience of college community, Catholic faith and prayer.  

If you’re looking to connect with new people, explore living a faith that does justice, try something new or just be inspired, come to Ignite. All are welcome. 

Bistro Night will have limited seating, catering and capacity. No RSVP is needed.
