The McGinley Lecture is delivered biannually as part of the Laurence J. McGinley Chair in Religion and Society. Father Ryan has held the chair since 2009. The lecture endeavors to facilitate a trialogue between people of Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths.

Previously held by Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., the chair was founded in 1988 to attract distinguished scholars interested in the interaction of religion with the legal, political and cultural forces in our pluralistic American society.
