‘En Todo Amar y Servir’ announced as mission theme

Acting Vice President for Mission and Ministry Rev. John Thiede, S.J., announces 2023 mission theme

The Office of Mission and Ministry would like to introduce its theme for the year: “En Todo Amar y Servir” or “To Love and Serve in Everything.”

This phrase comes from the Fourth Week of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius.  When one realizes that the love of God permeates our created world, how might we respond? 

With a desire to bring love to the world: cultivating unconditional acceptance, working together to lift each other up, and showing everyone what it means to be loved.

And since love shines the brightest when we see it in action, we are also called to serve.  With faith, we serve by trusting God to guide us. With kindness, we serve by being compassionate. With joy, we serve by sharing all we have. With openness, we serve by being a university for and with others. 

This academic year Marquette will strive to love and serve in all we do. 

Rev. John Thiede, S.J.
Acting Vice President for Mission and Ministry
