Regis College to use $1.5M grant to preserve and continue Scarboro work

October 26, 2017

Regis College has reportedly taken up the mantel of preserving and carrying forward the Scarboro Missions' work as the order devolves. “We wanted to continue their legacy,” said Regis College vice president and dean Scott Lewis. “This isn’t just a donation they’re giving us. We’re going to carry their work forward.” Regis College will use a $1.5M grant from the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society to establish a new chair in inter-religious dialogue and build the Msgr. John Mary Fraser Centre for Practical Theology. The centre will reportedly focus on issues relevant to today and include lectures, workshops, and other initiatives promoting the centre’s mission of interfaith dialogue and hand’s-on learning. Catholic Register | Regis College
