Professor Emeritus of Theology Mark Lowery, Ph.D., passed away the evening of Saturday, July 24, surrounded by his wife, Madeleine, and their nine children. The former long-time Theology Department chair and noted moral theologian retired from UD in 2016 after nearly three decades of service.
Remembered for his deep appreciation of Catholic theological tradition, Lowery was a frequent patron of the Cap Bar, where he would often meet with students after class to carry on discussions or play cards.
A rosary and memorial Mass will be held inside UD’s Church of the Incarnation. The Lowery family is kindly requesting for individuals attending the memorial services to wear a mask.
Rosary: Thursday, July 29
Memorial Mass: Friday, July 30
An on-campus reception will follow Mass on Friday. For those who will be attending the Mass and reception, please email Julie Dougherty at firstname.lastname@example.org.
