Franciscan Pilgrims' Progress

Pilgrims - Susan Jennifer Ellen

Five days into our time in Assisi, the pilgrims from Marian University have all experienced in new ways what our Franciscan sponsorship values mean—for us as individuals and for the Marian community.

Through their eyes we see that every man and woman is made in God’s image, a wonder to behold, no matter how different from us. Marian’s commitment to serve a diverse student body has been reaffirmed as an incredibly important feature of who we are and what we stand for as a Catholic Franciscan community...read more
