We welcome our graduands, their families, and our MDC community to join us as we gather to celebrate our 2024 graduating class.


The ceremony will take place at L. R. Wilson Concert Hall, located on the first floor of the L.R. Wilson building, located directly across the street from McMaster Divinity College. Following the ceremony, join us for a reception in Cullen Hall at McMaster Divinity College. 


For those who will not be able to attend Convocation in person, we will be live-streaming the event via YouTube. The link will be available a week prior to the event date.

Ordering Regalia

Students in master’s and professional programs (MA, MTS, MDiv, Graduate Certificate, Diploma) will be provided regalia for the ceremony which will need to be returned at the conclusion of the evening.

Doctoral students (DPT and PhD) have the option to purchase or rent regalia. Many graduates choose to do so to prepare for future teaching positions.

To purchase regalia, please contact Felice Bianchini at Harcourts and she will be able to provide you with ordering and pricing information. Be sure to place your order sooner rather than later to allow adequate time for tailoring and delivery. We recommend placing the order by April 1 at the very latest.

If you are planning to rent regalia, please indicate this when you RSVP for the event. Please note, we have a limited number of gowns available for doctoral students so they are available on a first come, first serve basis.
