Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
It has been an incredible spring as we moved towards April 1st. This is the day that our dear friends the Sisters of St. Joseph passed the torch to Tyndale. We began the day with prayer at the Ballyconnor Campus followed by a prayer walk to the new location where we dedicated the campus to Christ and His service. Praise God! Our lamp is lit for the world to see and we proclaim Christ, His love, His power and His presence in Toronto and around the world.
As we move forward in the spring season of newness I think of the words of Teresa of Avila “Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world. Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.”
Please share in the joy as we receive the gift of the new Tyndale Campus. Remember the students, faculty and staff in prayer. And when you have a chance, come for a visit.
Blessings upon you as you shine the light of Christ in your corner of the world.

Featured Alumni: Chul-Un (Peter) Ro (MTS, 2001)
Awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his achievements in acid rain studies in February 2013.
As a physical scientist at Environment Canada for 25 years, Mr. Ro has been a critical contributor to the advancement of acid rain science in Canada. He has been a long-term researcher in the field of acid rain science and has demonstrated inexhaustible attention to detail, quality and meeting the needs of the Canadian public. His accomplishments are many and are summarized below.
Mr. Ro has been Environment Canada’s lead with provincial acid rain monitoring networks to collect, archive and analyze federal-provincial data. His work has led to the production of a federal-provincial archive of acid deposition data that makes data accessible to both the public and the scientific community.
Mr. Ro has created an archive of national and international acid deposition maps. His maps have been critical for demonstrating the efficacy of Canadian and U.S. emission reductions on decreasing acid deposition in both countries.
Mr. Ro has advanced Canadian and international science through his contributions to peer-reviewed journal publications and other science assessments. His most recent peer-reviewed publication importantly quantified the strong influence of U.S. emissions on Canadian acid rain and provided scientific evidence to support the need for ongoing monitoring of acid rain in Canada. Internationally, Mr. Ro is currently contributing to a global science assessment of acid deposition for the World Meteorological Organization.
Mr. Ro’s dedication to the field of atmospheric acid rain research has been exemplary and his contributions have been foundational. He is highly regarded nationally and internationally and has been a true asset to Environment Canada through his hard work, dedication and positive attitude.
