Last month, Wycliffe Professor of New Testament, Ann Jervis, travelled to Washington, D.C., to participate in a unique gathering of Christian and Muslim scholars.

Global Day of Parents

For some, becoming a parent is a fairly simple thing. But it's never been easy to be a parent. Perhaps that is why the United Nations sets aside one day annually to honour those men and women who devote their time and energies to rearing the next generation, marking The Global Day of Parents on June 1st, every year.

What is it like to do a PhD?

What is it like to do a PhD? Perhaps the best person of whom to ask such a question is someone who is just wrapping up the long, sometimes stressful, always challenging process. Ian Vaillancourt (pictured at far left with his thesis supervisor, Glen Taylor) is one such person. As a Wycliffe student, he successfully completed his PhD thesis defence on May 9, 2017.

Songs of Scripture - Faculty Preaching Series - Fall 2016

Songs of Scripture - Faculty Sermons - Fall 2016

On Thursday mornings at Wycliffe it is customary for the faculty to preach in a series that goes through the term.  Sometimes we preach on a given book of Scripture, like Jeremiah;  sometimes it is on some key aspect of the Christian life, like vocation.  This term, we will be preaching  on the biblical “canticles”, that is, on those parts of Scripture we know to be songs: the Song of Moses at the Red Sea in Exodus 15,  the so-called  “Magnificat” or Song of Mary from Luke, and so on.
