Come Celebrate With Us

Come Celebrate With Us

April 13 and 14, 2024 will be a Celebration Weekend at CCS, and you can be a part!

Celebration Weekend is the time when the CCS community comes together to reconnect, to prayerfully celebrate our graduates, and to honour this year’s Companion of the Centre. There are lots of ways to get involved.

  1. Wish the grads and the Companion well. It’s easy; just pop over to THIS post on the website and leave a comment.
  2. Diaconal Profiles and Diaconal Pedagogy. Saturday, April 13 at 9:30am at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church (65 Walnut St). A joint session of the Integration learning circle, the Ages and Stages learning circle, the Central Council Face-to-Face meeting, and open to anyone from the CCS community who’s interested. Graduating students will share their Diaconal profile assignments – research they’ve done on people who have walked the diaconal path before them. Then CCS Program Staff member, Marcie Gibson, will sit down for a conversation with this year’s Companion of the Centre, Marlene Britton, about diaconal pedagogy – what is a diaconal approach to education and how can education be transformative?
  3. The CCS Banquet. Saturday, April 13 at 5:30pm at St. George’s Anglican (168 Wilton St). Eat, drink, be merry! The grads receive their diplomas. We chat with the Companion. Good food and good friends. Tickets at $60. Contact Cheryl at office@ccsonline.ca to book yours today.
  4. The Annual Service of Celebration. Sunday, April 14 at 2:00 at All Saints Anglican (521 Broadway). A celebratory worship service to recognize the graduates and honour the Companion. There will be pins. There will be towels (if you know, you know). There will be singing. There will be snacks afterwards. This service is free and open to the public. Parking is available across the street at Canada Life (spots that don’t say “reserved 24 hours” or something similar).

Come join your community is celebration.
