Andrew Bennett, Canada's Ambassador of Religious Freedom, encouraged students graduating from Ottawa's Augustine College to seek wisdom, pray faithfully, and spread the gospel just as the apostles did.
Augustine College offers a rare form of Christian ecumenism where professors and students from a variety of Christian confessions—Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, Presbyterian and others—not only study together but do so while consciously living out their faith in community.

“Your experience in community this year has given you insight into what life in community really means,” said Andrew Bennett. “It’s a vocation lived daily. You have to recognize your pride and swallow it.”
