December 8th: Advent Service of Commissioning and Blessing

All are invited to attend the Advent Service of Commissioning and Blessing at which those students who will be eligible to graduate at the end of this semester will be commissioned as new graduates.  While these December graduands will be awarded their degrees at Convocation on May 11th, 2016, this Service of Commissioning and Blessing is a chance for us to recognize these students and their achievements. This service will begin at 4:15PM in the Chapel.

The service on the 8th will also be the last community worship service of 2015. We hope everyone will take the time to attend and then stick around for the Community Dinner that follows the service to congratulate our December graduands and share fellowship with the Knox community before classes end and the College closes for the Christmas holidays.

We hope to see everyone there.

Muriel Caroline Farris (1922-2015)

It is with sadness that Knox received the news of Muriel Farris’ passing on November 21st in Guelph, Ontario. Our prayers and condolences go out to her family and friends. While never a student at Knox, Mrs. Farris will be well remembered by many Knox students who studied under her husband – the late Rev. Dr. Allan Farris who was Professor of Church History before serving as principal of Knox from 1976 until his untimely death in 1977 – for her hospitality and strong interest in the College and its students. Mrs. Farris is also the mother of the Rev. Dr. Stephen C. Farris: former Professor of Preaching and Worship at Knox and the Moderator of the 140th General Assembly.

For more information about Muriel Farris, please read her obituary in the Toronto Star.
