Maguire Lecture & Dinner

  •  

     

    Every November our campus gathers to remember the lives, deaths and legacies of the Jesuit Martyrs of El Salvador and their companions at our Celebration of Hope Liturgy. Inspired by the lives these men and women, we also host the annual Maguire lecture- named for Joseph Maguire, SJ- Seattle University’s first campus minister.  This lecture serves as a venue to engage our students, alumni, faculty, staff and community partners in dialogue around current justice issues through the lens of faith.
