|Monica McClure, who will be graduating from Knox College’s Master of Divinity program this spring, received the Chris Vais Community Award at Knox’s Graduation Banquet on Friday, March 20th. Congratulations Monica!
The Chris Vais Community Award is presented to a theological student in their graduating year who has contributed to the Knox Community in an exceptional way by having a pastoral and community building influence on the College. The person who receives this award is elected by faculty, staff and students of Knox College.
Knox’s Graduation Banquet is an opportunity for College faculty, staff and students to acknowledge and congratulate graduating students on their hard work. This year, 10 of 26 graduands were able to attend the banquet.
Graduands will be awarded their degrees at convocation on May 13th, 2015. Please see convocation for more information about this year’s convocation and pre-convocation events.

In his engaging and thought provoking lecture on March 11th, the Rev. Dr. Darrell Guder presented his ideas and arguments concerning the need for Presbyterians and Christians more generally to use a missional lens to rethink the ways they form their religious communities.
Speaking to a full room, this year’s Laidlaw Lecture was also viewed in real-time at more than 20 remote sites via YouTube. Audience members both at the college and across Canada were able to listen to Dr. Guder’s talk, ask questions and join in the lively discussion thanks to Knox College’s new video conferencing technologies in classroom 4 where the lectures were held. If you were unable to attend the lecture, you can watch the full lecture and the discussion that followed on Knox’s YouTube channel (accessed by clicking on the YouTube icon at the bottom right of this screen).
On March 10th, Dr. Guder also joined Knox students, faculty and staff for our weekly community chapel and supper.
Thank you to Rev. Dr. Darrell Guder, participants and all the organizers who made these events possible.
