Rector C. Beauvais, Vice-Rector, D. Tessier, Father A. Spatafora, Dean of the faculty of Theology and many teachers represented Saint Paul University in this official ceremony. The Toronto Orthodox Theological Academy was represented by Metropolitan Archbishop Sotirios of Toronto, the Ambassador of Greece to Canada, Angelopoulos and many other important members of the Theological Academy and Embassy.
Saint Paul University is federated with Ottawa University. As it is commonly known, the Theological Academy and Sherbrooke University are twin institutions. As Sherbrooke University is situated outside Ontario and because of the fact that Canada has a provincial education network, it has been decided that it would be better to have a twin university inside Ontario.
After the ceremony of this historical agreement, Ambassador Angelopoulos hosted a dinner at the Canadian Ambassador’s residence for the above mentioned officials.
