We all know what “busy” means and it’s the busyness that’s often the reason for not taking the time to “retreat.”  This retreat, designed for both beginners as well as those already immersed in their spiritual journey, invites us to slow down from the hectic pace of life, to take time for ourselves, our God and prayer. The schedule is flexible to accommodate your busy schedule!  Register by Wednesday, February 26, at 288-4545 or FaberCenter@marquette.edu


  • Opening Prayer Service:  Monday, March 3, Noon -1:00 p.m., Chapel of  the Holy Family,  Alumni Memorial Union, 2nd floor   

(Note: Attendance at the opening prayer service is highly recommended)

  • Meet with a spiritual director weekly for 6 weeks
  • Commit yourself to at least 15-30 minutes of prayer each day
  • Closing Prayer Service: Monday, April 14, Noon -1:00 p.m., Chapel of the Holy Family




All employees are invited to take some time out for prayer and reflection, refreshment and renewal, as you travel along your journey during the Holy Season of  Lent. Please join us for this morning of slowing down at the end of your hectic and busy week.  Register by Wednesday, March 5, at FaberCenter@marquette.edu or by calling 288-4545. 



The Faber Center offers an opportunity to meet regularly  (at a mutually suitable time) with a spiritual director, someone with whom to talk and reflect on the invitations and experiences we encounter that lead us to grow into a deeper awareness  of that which is sacred and meaningful in our lives.



The Faber Center offers the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius in a nine-month format (September – May).  This transformative retreat brings faculty and staff into a profound encounter with God’s love and a deepening awareness of our response.  If you are interested in participating in the retreat, which will start in Fall 2014, please contact Michael Dante at 288-5059 or michael.dante@marquette.edu.

Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius

The exercises are a pathway to recognizing God's activity in our deepest desires and growing in unity with God. Emerging from the experience of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, the Exercises provide a structured opportunity to mature in spiritual freedom and make choices that are responsive to God's call in one's life.
