Louise Week 2023: A time of celebration

In honor of St. Louise de Marillac's Feast Day on May 9, the Division of Mission and Ministry invites the DePaul community to celebrate Louise Week from May 6 through 12.

As we celebrate DePaul's 125th anniversary and embrace a time of dreaming, designing and innovating, St. Louise provides us a unique example of Vincentian leadership. Her life was a demonstration of love in action through her innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. Her story reminds us of the possibility of transforming systems and lives.

Louise Week 2023 begins Saturday with Vincentian Service Day, followed by a week of celebration. Just as St. Louise was sustained by the generosity and goodness of those around her, may we, too, take the time to pause, uplift and celebrate with gratitude those who sustain our journey and inspire us.
