Even the rain wasn't enough to dampen spirits on Monday, May 13, when the Wycliffe College community gathered to celebrate 39 new graduates and to award honorary degrees to Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Bishop Chris Harper, Bishop Susan Bell, and Hazel McCallion (who addressed the graduates). Congratulations to all, and also to Gary Shaw for receiving the Archdeacon Harry St. Clair Hilchey Award and Karen Stiller for receiving membership to the Alumni Association as Honorary Alumnus.
In a written message to the graduates, Alumni Association President, Jonathan Turtle (W12) wrote, "You now stand in a long line of men and women whose courageous service to the gospel of Christ has impacted families and communities across Canada and abroad. Wherever you may go from here we hope that Wycliffe has adequately prepared you and will remain a very happy chapter in your life and ministry. ... As you go now in the peace of Christ know that our prayers go with you."
