Latin diplomas have found a home at Redeemer Pacific College in Langley. B.C. Catholic contributor and RPC Latin professor C.S. Morrissey explains the significance of the Church's language:
When you received your diploma, was it written in Latin? It's a university tradition that goes back to medieval times. This year Redeemer Pacific College decided to reinstate it.

For the first time in its history, for this year's convocation April 28, Redeemer Pacific printed its parchments in Latin.

Redeemer Pacific has been around since 1999 in Langley, and its courses count as credit towards degrees at Trinity Western University (TWU). RPC also offers certificate programs in Catholic liberal arts, Catholic theological studies, Catholic education, and also a Minor in Catholic studies as part of TWU's religious studies degree.
