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.

Prayer has been a constant for us. Daily Eucharist—whether in small chapels, large basilicas or our hotel--has become the centering experience of our journey. More than half of us are not Catholic, but this most significant of all Catholic rituals has embraced all and engaged us in the formation of a community of individuals renewed in our commitment to the mission of Marian University—to be a great Catholic university dedicated to excellent teaching and learning in the Franciscan and liberal arts tradition.

Reverence for the dignity of every individual stands out as the first, and perhaps most treasured, Franciscan value. Meeting Francis and Clare as we have done—intimately and in amazing detail—has shown us how different they were from each other and from us.

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.

New Power Booster Location at Clay Terrace

by Katie Bradley | Feb 04, 2014



Once only offered on the campus of Marian University, Power Booster, a high-tech indoor riding and coaching program put on by Marian University Cycling, is now available at the St.Vincent Sports Performance Clay Terrace location in Carmel, Indiana. The university plans an open house to showcase the new facility on Saturday, March 1, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Founded by Marian University’s head cycling coach, Dean Peterson, the popular indoor cycling training series is in its eighth year of preparing Indy-area cyclists for a full season of training and competition through an established system of workouts that take place on state-of-the-art CompuTrainer© units.

Power Booster is great for cyclists with spring or summer racing goals, triathletes, or for people looking to get in shape and lose some unwanted weight fast and effectively. The series of classes works as a cohesive system to increase power and train riders with pedal efficiency drills, specific output intervals, and feedback from coaches, who are experienced cyclists in the community.  

The Power Booster Program includes 4-week and 6-week classes. For a complete list of current and upcoming courses, visit the Power Booster website.
