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.

Dyson Hague's portrait is seen through the door of the Cody Library

When past and present come together

The Rev. Dyson Hague is a larger-than-life figure in the history of Wycliffe College. A faculty member from 1907 until his death in 1935, he left behind a wonderful legacy of faith not only for those who would come after him here, but for generations of family members.

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.
