Dio’s relationships with McGill and the Montreal School of Theology allow us to offer a world-class education while remaining an intimate community in which we all support one another as we continue to grow in our calling to serve Christ in the world. At Dio, no one is forgotten and everyone is valued.
During the term, the college gathers on Wednesdays for a community Eucharist and lunch. These meals bring together students, faculty, guests, associates, and others who are passing through. On the first and third Fridays of the month, students and faculty gather for Eucharist and breakfast. Many alumni remember these early morning meals as the most memorable part of their time at the college, for the way they offer an informal way to support one another on our common journey.
During the week, some students choose to spend time in the dedicated student areas in the college, whether to socialize with one another or, in separate rooms, to read, study, and prepare assignments. Lockers are available for commuting students to store belongings, and a community kitchen is available to all members of the community.
The College Chaplain is a pastoral resource to all members of the college community and particularly to students as they navigate the pathway of discerning a call to ministry.
