The Cantors are Named Honorary Senior Fellows of Renison University College
January 14th, 2007, Renison College (The University of Waterloo)

Renison's 48th Convocation and Founder's Day celebration began with a Choral Evensong at The Church of St. John The Evangelist in Kitchener, welcomed by The Rev. Canon Chris Pratt, Rector of St. John's. Renison's Chaplain, The Reverend Megan Collings-Moore officiated at the Evensong.

The Board of Governors of Renison College chose this occasion to honour all four of The Three Cantors by conferring upon them the status of "Honorary Senior Fellows" of the College. Renison celebrates the Cantors' ministries in the church, and especially their ten years of singing to contribute to community building and raising funds and awareness to alleviate world hunger and support sustainable development through The Huron Hunger Fund and The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund.

The Cantors were highly honoured to be thus acknowledged and welcomed by the Renison community.
It was a particular pleasure hear the citation read by none other than Archdeacon Peter Townshend, whose idea and vision got The Cantors' ten years of success underway.

In addition to Peter Townshend, the Cantors took this opportunity to thank every sponsoring parish or community that has made their concerts possible, The Huron Hunger Fund and its volunteers who have produced and sold CD's, their own parish communities over the years who so readily supporting their work, Mr. David Cornelius of London who has quietly worked behind the scenes organizing bookings, and their families for their support throughout this ministry.
