Cardinal Thomas Collins, Chancellor of St. Augustine's Seminary, has announced that, upon his recommendation, the St. Augustine's Board of Governors has appointed Rev. Robert Barringer, CSB, as the President of Toronto School of Theology's member school, St. Augustine's Seminary.

The Toronto School of Theology welcomes Fr. Barringer back to St. Augustine's and wishes him success in his role as President.

The Toronto School of Theology (TST) was deeply saddened to learn that Rev. Dr. C. Douglas Jay, founding Director of TST, passed away on January 1, 2021, at the age of 95. Dr. Jay was also emeritus principal of TST's member school, Emmanuel College.

Dr. Jay was a TST founder and its founding Director (1969-80). One of TST's prestigious, and highly competitive Board of Trustees scholarships, the C. Douglas Jay Scholarship, was established by the Board in 1981 in his honour, and is made possible thanks to contributions made by the Douglas and Ruth Jay Family Foundation.
