Inspired by the "round table discussions" of Peter Maurin and the Catholic Worker Movement, Soup with Substance is a noon-time presentation on an issue related to peacemaking and social justice over a simple meal of soup and bread. Each academic year, the Center for peacemaking and Campus Ministry host nearly 40 Soup with Substance Programs!
If your Marquette University department or student organization has an idea for a Soup with Substance speaker or a topic, please contact the Soup with Substance coordinator. Please see below to make sure that your suggestion fits with the mission and vision of the Center for Peacemaking and Campus Ministry.
The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking
We envision a future of peace for the earth and for humanity, when the world has rejected war and violence as the way to resolve conflict and has embraced nonviolent action as the way to overcome oppression, resolve conflict, protect the earth and bring the human family together.
The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking strives to empower the University and the wider community to explore together the necessary skills to become informed, spiritually-centered, nonviolent peacemakers. Rooted in the Ignatian charism, the Center works with spirit of confidence and joy to achieve an awakening to the complementary relationship of scholarship, spirituality, non-violent living, and the active struggle for peace and justice.
The proclamation of the Good news in word, sacrament, and service, and the living out of gospel values is the mission of Campus Ministry in the "city" that is Marquette University.
As missioned by the Catholic Church, this work of love is directed particularly toward the education and pastoral care of students of all faith traditions and other members of the university community. This ministry is further defined by a commitment to continuing the work and spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
