Mission of the Marquette Contemplative Community

The Marquette Contemplative Community [MCC] was established to support interest in contemplative practices at Marquette University. The mission of the Marquette Contemplative Community is to offer educational programming and contemplative practice as a community of people who value the possibilities contemplation holds for meaningful life and service, both at Marquette and in our wider society. Our vision is nonsectarian, and has emphasis on mindfulness meditation, loving kindness and compassion meditation, and Christian contemplative prayer.
