Maguire Lecture & Dinner

This year's lecture will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2017, from 6:00pm - 9:00pm. Please reserve this date in your calendars. More information will be forthcoming.

The annual Joseph A. Maguire, SJ, Campus Ministry Lecture serves to remind us of the legacy of Fr. Maguire and his passionate commitment to campus ministry at Seattle University. Fr. Maguire was the first campus minister at SU and his legacy lives on in the great ministry work that continues to happen on our campus. In addition to honoring Fr. Maguire, 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.
