About Gesu

On September 14, 1994, the Provincial of the Wisconsin Province of the Society of Jesus prepared the way for the second century of Gesu's parish life. After a two-year process that attempted to "clarify, redefine and maximize" the collaboration between Gesu, Marquette University and the Marquette University Jesuit Community, the Provincial decided to separately incorporate Gesu as an Archdiocesan Parish, sponsored by the Society of Jesus.

With the blessing of Archbishop Rembert Weakland, he called us to embrace the parish territory entrusted to us, especially the Marquette community. So, though parishioners will continue to be gathered to Gesu from all over the city, our special concern for the future, as a parish, will be the care and involvement of the people of our neighborhood and the Marquette community.
