First Year at Xavier University:



Christian Ethics


Dr. Marcus Mescher’s main areas of interest include Christian ethics, Catholic social thought, and socio-cultural influences on moral formation. He teaches classes that focus on human dignity and rights, social and ecological justice, solidarity and the common good.  He has participated in Xavier’s Alternative Breaks program and Xavier Expeditions trip to Alaska and gives presentations to local schools and parishes on a variety of topics related to Catholic theology, ethics, and Pope Francis' Jubilee Year of Mercy. Recently, Dr. Mescher has presented papers at the Society of Christian Ethics and College Theology Society, ranging from topics on environmental stewardship and advocacy via social media, liturgy as a practice of human and divine synergy for inclusive solidarity, and families as factories of hope and agents of mercy in a time marked by unjust inequalities and social division.  He has published in the Journal of Catholic Social Thought and Justice Magazine and writes about the intersection of faith, ethics, and popular culture at Millennial Journal.
