Ratio Christi at Crandall University is pleased to award RC’s Legatus Christi certificate to Christopher McCready!

Chris has just graduated from Crandall University with a Bachelor of Business Administration and spent much of his time at Crandall being involved in RC’s ministry on the campus (as well as any other ministry he could add to his plate). During his last academic year, he was the Treasurer/Secretary (affectionately called the “Treacretary” by his peers) of the RC at CU apologetics club and was regularly involved with every aspect of the chapter’s ministry.

He is well-read, listens carefully to both sides of an argument, and shares his own thoughts with gentleness and respect. I have no doubt that he will excel in his future ministries.”

I was baptized at the age of 10 and, especially since then, God has been shaping and guiding me through numerous trials. And He has always been faithful.

When I came to Crandall University in 2016, Ratio Christi did not yet have a chapter established there. But when
