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
