After 136 years the last-ever theologians will graduate from the University of Winnipeg on Friday.

Six students at the University's theology program will take part in the convocation ceremony, bringing a close to the school's theology program.

The program first began in 1883 for training Presbyterian ministers. Since then it continually trained pastors, ministers, and chaplains, through a variety of mergers.

The university blames declining enrolment and funding cuts from the United Church of Canada for the closure.

Some people are already mourning the loss, saying the program attracted a diverse student body and promoted interaction with many faith traditions.
