Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy: A Study

The Church of the Gesu and Marquette University Campus Ministry have come together to offer a study of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy to our communities. Click here for more.


Sacrificial Giving and Almsgiving

Lent is a time of fasting, self-denial, spiritual growth, and conversion to deepen our faith, our relationship to God and our commitment to our neighbors. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, we invite you to pray, fast, and consider sacrificial giving and almsgiving for those in need.

Palms to Ashes

Do you have blessed palms left from last Palm Sunday? You can drop them off in church and we will burn them to make more ashes for next year’s Ash Wednesday.


Easter Memorials



Non-Perishable Food Donations Needed



Low-Gluten Hosts

Low-gluten hosts are available for those members of our community who have an allergy to gluten or suffer from celiac disease. If you would like to receive a low-gluten host at Mass, we ask that you come to the sacristy before Mass begins. Please speak with Margi Horner, Director of Liturgy or one of our Gesu priests. You can contact the Liturgy Office at 414-288-7101 or margaret.horner@marquette.edu if you have any questions.
