Beyond MU | Women as Pillars of Faith: A Marquette Campus Pilgrimage
May is the month dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the epitome of God’s faithful servant. And like our Holy Mother, Joan of Arc and Mother Teresa of Calcutta answered God’s call to serve, earning recognition as saints for their faith without limits.

Learn how each of these three holy women is foundational to Marquette’s mission pillar of faith by exploring three sacred spaces at the core of our campus — a built corridor representing both the physical heart and spiritual center of the university.

Join Drs. Kathy Coffey-Guenther and Laura Abing for a reflective and historical pilgrimage that starts at the recently created Marian Grotto, continues with a tour of the adjacent St. Joan of Arc Chapel, and concludes with a visit to the Mother Teresa Memorial just west of the grotto. The campus community is blessed to feature what truly is a “power alley” dedicated to three incomparable women of faith. We welcome the opportunity to share these empowering spaces with you.

May 27, 2021 12:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
