Baccalaureate

We gather for our last prayer service together as a whole class. At Baccalaureate, we celebrate the many accomplishments, memories, friendships, and dreams that have come to light over the last four years.

Thursday, May 20 at 6 PM
Garaventa Center

The in-person Baccalaureate Mass for students will be Thursday, May 20 from 6:00 - 7:15 PM with a senior Awards Dinner to follow, ending at 9:00 PM.

Due to capacity limitations, families will celebrate together safely at home, watching the ceremony via high-quality livestream, available below. Though we will be physically separated, our hearts will be united as we bless the Class of 2021.

Graduate Information

  • Graduates should arrive no later than 5:50 PM so we can start our mass and livestream promptly at 6:00 PM.
  • Dress nicely for this special occasion. Wear your “Sunday Best” or a dressy outfit that you would wear to an event like Junior Ring Ceremony.
  • Wear your Graduation Gown, zipped, over your outfit for the liturgy. Do not wear/bring your cap.
  • Remember to leave the surprise for your parents and guardians on your bed before heading to Carondelet for the evening.
  • Please help us create a healthy and safe environment for our liturgy by wearing your mask and maintaining distance from one another for the entire mass. There will be first-come, first-served open seating, but please do not move any chairs when you arrive.

Parent/Family Information

Be intentional about participating in the liturgy with our graduates by saying the prayer responses aloud, joining us in song, and even dressing up.

Find a link to the worship aid (words for the prayers and songs) on this page soon. We suggest printing this ahead of time or opening it on a personal device to follow along.

Plan ahead and set up a sacred space at home where you will join us in prayer through the livestream. You will need to choose a space where your family can gather around a large TV or computer that everyone can see.

Other suggestions for setting up a sacred space at home: include a prayer table with a table cloth and candle. Add a cross or other religious items or high school memorabilia to personalize your worship space. Consider taking a photo of your sacred space with your graduate.

 

Senior Awards and Dinner

After mass, students will enjoy a meal they selected in the RSVP. Students can RSVP until Monday, May 17. During dinner, we will recognize special Senior Awards. This will be recorded for families to watch at a later date.

With entertainment from DJ High Top, a photo booth, and a few surprises, we can’t wait to celebrate the last time students will be on campus before they graduate!
