May 9 Convocation in Wycliffe College's Sheraton Hall

A joyous, in-person convocation

Wycliffe College's first in-person convocation since the pandemic began took place May 9, in Sheraton Hall. It was a time to celebrate the Class of '22, and Principal Stephen Andrews described the event as a "historic occasion in many respects." It was, he said, the College's "first—and hopefully only—COVID class."

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby delivers sombre, challenging address at Wycliffe

On Tuesday, May 3, The Most Reverend Justin Portal Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, was honoured at Wycliffe College with a Doctor of Divinity (honoris causa). 

Calling the degree a "deeply unmerited but very gracious honour," Archbishop Justin said the award—which was given on the final day of a visit to Canada during which he apologized for residential schools—came on the heels of "a traumatic time of learning and listening."
