Vision and Mission


Growing in God’s redeeming power, Montreal Dio is a creative learning community forming leaders for God’s mission.


We teach people to be leaders in God’s world, preparing them to share the Gospel in whatever way God calls them, by

  • offering high quality and innovative programmes of theological education, vocational discernment and spiritual formation for lay and ordained people of the Anglican Communion, United Church of Canada, and other traditions;
  • engaging the challenges of the cultural and linguistic context of Montreal and the world of the 21st Century;
  • partnering with world class educational institutions, the global church, and other dynamic organizations.

We build community to foster ongoing learning and support by

  • nurturing an inclusive student body and faculty through meaningful relationships, common worship, and challenging theological reflection;
  • sustaining networks of support and continuing education for alumni;
  • equipping parishes to serve as sites of missional learning and growth;
  • leveraging opportunities with the wider community.
