About the Lecture Series
The Marianist Lecture (formerly the Mackey Marianist Lecture) is celebrating its 25th Anniversary.
The Marianist Lecture fosters inclusive dialogue on Catholic Thought and Catholic Responsibility, gathering at the Kalaepohaku campus in a spirit of community and with a sense of place.
With this lecture, we are initiating the Mackey Award for Catholic Thought.
It is given to the presenter in honor of Fr. Robert Mackey, S.M., the first President of Chaminade University. Fr. Mackey was an important voice in the civic and religious community of Honolulu. This lecture series seeks to continue his commitment to Catholic Thought and Catholic Responsibility in the world.
The Mackey Award for Catholic Thought honors scholarly, community and faith leaders whose body of work advances the spirit, charism and educational mission of the Society of Mary and the Marianist Family.
