Roche given Honorary
Doctor of Theology
WATERLOO, Ont. — Dr. David Perrin, president and vice-chancellor of St. Jerome’s University, has announced that Hon. Douglas Roche will be presented with a doctor of theology degree, honouris causa, at the university’s convocation mass on June 14.
The honorary theology doctorate is awarded by St. Jerome’s University
to an individual who has made extraordinary contributions to Catholic
culture and values, to academia, and to society. Roche’s efforts
to promote human welfare, human rights and parliamentary democracy in
Canada and abroad, as well as his Catholic service on disarmament and
security matters, acutely reflect the spirit of this degree.
St. Jerome’s University, which was established by the Congregation of the Resurrection in 1865 and became federated with the University of Waterloo in 1960, registers full- and part-time students in the Faculties of Arts and Mathematics.
