COMMUNITY RELEASE

TWO SAINTS ARRIVE AT ST. PAUL'S COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA


January 11, 2019– Winnipeg, Manitoba   St. Paul the Apostle and St. Ignatius of Loyola now stand in reverence on either side of the front doors to Christ the King Chapel. Installed in December the newly added stained glass windows were designed by Lucinda Doran and brought to life by Matthew MacMillan of Prairie Studio Glass. Familiar to the College’s community, Rosemarie Finlay and Matthew Semchyshyn contributed their artisanship to the project’s completion.

The Jesuits of Winnipeg and the Jesuit Centre for Catholic Studies each pledged $1,000 towards the stained glass windows, which will be blessed on January 27, 2019 at 11 am during the celebration of the Feast of the Conversation of St. Paul. The Academic Awards Ceremony will follow this special Liturgy and the community is invited to participate in our celebration.


The committee, with support from the Community Development Office, have succeeded in securing over $13,965.50 in pledges and are nearing the goal of raising $15,000. The next phase of the Chapel upgrades will address the outer exterior’s mosaic tiles estimated to be around $175,000 and, the third phase; will include updates to the Sacristy.
