First woman priest honoured by college.

The life and work of Rev. Li Tim-Oi, the first woman priest in the Anglican Communion, have been marked by Renison College, which broke ground recently on a resource centre named for her. The Reverend Li Tim-Oi Resource Centre, which is based at the University of Waterloo, will comprise a memorial reading room and archives and is intended to help future generations to learn about the life and work of the ground-breaking priest. It will also house Ms. Tim-Oi's personal papers and will incorporate materials from the college's East Asian and Anglican collections.

Ordained as a deacon in 1941, Ms. Tim-Oi was priested by Bishop R. O. Hall of Hong Kong in 1944. She served the church in Hong Kong, Macau, China and retired in Toronto in 1981. She died there in 1992.

Funds for the resource centre were raised by a committee and from a donation by Anglican Foundation.

Renison also marked the 61st anniversary of Ms. Tim-Oi's ordination to the priesthood with a May 1S service at a church in Scarborough, Ont.
