Wycliffe College Celebrates the Graduating Class of 2020

Graduation Celebration
May 11th

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

On Monday, May 11, 2020—the day that was to have been Wycliffe's annual spring convocation—faculty, staff, and graduates gathered virtually to celebrate online. A 6:00 p.m. live streamed service in Founders' Chapel kicked off the festivities, followed by consecutive Zoom receptions—first for Advanced Degree Graduates and then for Basic Degree Graduates. Each graduate was introduced and honoured by a faculty member, and given an opportunity to express a few words, a time in which Wycliffe's newest alumni spoke fondly of their appreciation for faculty and for the rich experience of community they enjoyed during their time of study here.

"Every day was a blessing," said Zachary Bartkus (MDiv), while Michael Lyons (MDiv) testified that he "gained a deeper appreciation for the wider Christian family" during his time here.

Former senior student Sydney Caron spoke movingly, saying "Wycliffe gave me an opportunity to do so many things I love: to live in community, to experience formation and to gather around the table [with other students, residents, and faculty]." And Bridget Poole (MDiv) shared her astonishment at learning not only that both her grandfathers had studied here but also her great great grandfather, Charles Sadleir (who is featured in one of the stained glass windows in Founders' Chapel). "God definitely sent me to Wycliffe," she said.
