Annual Service of Celebration

This Sunday (April 3rd) at 3pm at St. George’s Anglican Church Crescentwood, 168 Wilton Street, Winnipeg, the Centre for Christian Studies holds its annual Service of Celebration to acknowledge the students who are graduating from the Diploma in Diaconal Ministries program this year, and to honour Mary Ellen Moore who is being named a Companion of the Centre.  All  are welcome.  If you’d like to leave a congratulatory message for the grads or companion, please feel free.

We have posted video and audio from the service.  You can click here to listen to an MP3 of the Service of Celebration (or right click to save the target to your computer).  [Apologies – the sound quality is not as good as I would have liked.]  Here is the order of service, if you’d like to follow along at home!
