Mission and Identity

    As a Catholic and Spiritan University, Duquesne prides itself on being mission-centered and mission-driven.

    The extent to which mission informs and enlivens every aspect of University life is noteworthy at Duquesne.

    And it is the privilege of the Division of Mission and Identity to animate and cultivate these efforts throughout the entire university community.

    Prayer to the Holy Spirit

    Breathe in me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may reflect you. Act in me, Holy Spirit, that my life may further God's Reign. Fill my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love with great kindness. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend the poor and needy. Embolden me, Holy Spirit, that my life may be a witness to the Gospel. Preserve me, Holy Spirit, that I may always remain your dwelling place.
    - adapted from a prayer by St. Augustine
