Ecumenist Will Lead Canadian School

Thorneloe University

The Rev. Canon John Gibaut, director of unity, faith, and order at the Anglican Communion Office, will become president, provost, and vice chancellor of Canada’s Thorneloe University on June 1.

Thorneloe University is a founding member of the Laurentian University Federation on the campus of Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.

Gibaut has been the lead Anglican Communion staff member on ecumenical dialogues with other church families. He has also been the lead adviser on theological issues and on inter-Anglican dialogue. He came to the Anglican Communion Office from the World Council of Churches.

“I am excited to join Thorneloe University and live in the city of greater Sudbury,” Gibaut said. “I look forward to meeting students and working with the faculty, staff and Board of Governors.”

A priest of the Diocese of Ottawa, Gibaut has been a member of the Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue of Canada, the Faith and Witness Commission of the Canadian Council of Churches, the International Commission for Anglican-Orthodox Theological Dialogue, and the Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Ecumenical Relations.
