Shortly after the selection of Dr. John DeGioia as Georgetown’s first lay president in 2001, the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University hosted a 2001 forum that addressed the question, Is there an “Ignatian community” in which a lay president can be a member? This brief volume includes presentations from that event. Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington, speaks on “A Particular Collaboration within a Universal Church”; Howard J. Gray, rector of the Jesuit community at John Carroll University in Cleveland, talks of colleagueship in the context of the 34th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus; and Dr. DeGioia speaks on the unique qualities of Georgetown University and the challenges facing a layperson as president. Also included is a foreword by James Connor, S.J., director of the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown, and remarks by the forum’s moderator, Woodstock senior fellow Dolores R. Leckey.
