Best Wishes to our 2014 Grads

This weekend seven students will graduate from the CCS Diaconal Diploma Program.  They will receive their diplomas at a banquet on Saturday night (March 29) and will be recognized at the Annual Service of Celebration on Sunday afternoon (2:00 pm, March 30, at Thompson Funeral Chapel on Broadway in Winnipeg).  If you can’t join us for the ASC on Sunday (or even if you can) please leave a word of congratulations to our graduates in the comments below.  We’ll pass them on to the grads: Ellen Baynton-Walker, Jamie Bradshaw, Barbara Hansen, Gwen McAllister, Jacqueline Samson, Kelley Warner, and Kristin Wood.
