The Centrality of the Good Person in Jesuit Education

The tradition of educating for goodness, for discovering one’s personal moments of summons to be a good person, lies within, not outside, higher education. Rev. Howard Gray, S.J., Ph.D., returned to Georgetown for the spring Dahlgren Chapel Sacred Lecture, his third and what proved to be his final lecture at Georgetown. Fr. Gray drew on over sixty years experience as a teacher, administrator and board member at Georgetown, Fordham University, John Carroll University, Loyola University-New Orleans, University of Detroit-Mercy, Weston School of Theology, and the Jesuit School of Theology-Berkeley. At the time of his death in May 2018, Fr. Gray was on the staff of Manresa Jesuit Retreat House in Bloomfield Hills, MI.
