Sweeny Lecture Series

The Sweeny Memorial Lecture Fund In Christian Ethics And Theology is named in memory of long-time Christ Church Grosse Pointe parishioners, Mary Margaret Sweeny and Donald N. Sweeny Jr., MD. It was originally funded in 1986 and is sustained by a family endowment. The goal of the lecture series is to educationally enrich the greater Grosse Pointe community and the congregation of Christ Church Grosse Pointe by inviting a speaker or speakers to address the congregation and the community on a subject broadly relevant to Christian ethics and theology.
