The students in the CCS Integrating Year are one month away from graduating! Plan to be part of the celebration. Festivities start on the evening of March 25th with a banquet at St. George’s Anglican Church Crescentwood (168 Wilton Street, Winnipeg). Tickets are $45 ($20 for CCS students). You can get an individual ticket just for yourself, or buy tickets for all your friends and family. (Heck, even if you’re not coming you could buy a ticket to donate to a student, if you were so inclined.) Contact Cheryl at the CCS office to purchase your ticket.
The next day, March 26, is the Annual Service of Celebration. Come worship with the graduates and honour this year’s Companion of the Centre, Linda Ervin.
