Mission Week 2024: Continuing to Act, this time with Faith

After the success of last year’s first iteration of the new Mission Week arc with Act with Kindness, this year the Office of Mission and Ministry is asking the campus community to Act with Faith.

This year’s theme calls upon us to let our faith lead us to peace, joy and freedom and to remember that faith is a gift that transforms us.

When we are unsure, faith offers us hope. When we’re scared, faith offers us courage. Faith connects us to someone greater than ourselves, and it comforts us with the knowledge that we’re not alone.

There are many great events that will help boost spirits in early February in our sacred spaces and through reflections across campus with invited guests and lunches open to our faculty, staff and students in Alumni Memorial Union.

As Mission Week approaches on Feb. 4 — beginning with Mass at the Church of the Gesu — Vice President of Mission and Ministry Rev. John Thiede, S.J., says he looks forward to further celebration of our En Todo Amar y Servir Mission theme through the lens of faith. 

“Mission Week is always an exciting time on campus as we are reminded of our mission and how we can work toward being thoughtful and faithful stewards of God’s grace,” Thiede says. “The entire Division of Mission and Ministry and so many partners across campus have lined up a fun and thought-provoking week of events for students, faculty and staff to enjoy and gather together to see how others have acted with faith and how we can learn from their experiences.”
