Hying’s visit, his second in as many years, also included a celebration of Mass in the St. Joan of Arc Chapel. It was sponsored by the St. Robert Bellarmine Society, a Catholic group on campus with a specific focus on devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Hying discussed some of the challenges the Church is facing today, both internally and societally.
“We’re living through an amazing period in history and the Church,” he said.
He also pointed out the importance of young people getting involved in religion, especially college students.
“It’s when you’re in college that you set your moral compass for the rest of your life,” he said.
Shannon Webster, a junior in the College of Communication and president of the St. Robert Bellarmine Society, agreed.Yep!
“There’s a need for Catholic spirituality on campus,” Webster said.
I'm glad to see Marquette seems to be taking baby steps in the right direction.
