What is a Baccalaureate Mass?

A Baccalaureate Mass is a laudable custom. It is a liturgical event bringing before God an important moment of transition in the lives of the faithful, as students conclude their course of study and turn to the future. It is an occasion of joy, thanksgiving, and humble recognition of need. At the same time, it is a moment of blessing directed at the graduating students themselves and their future, and also directed to the faculty, staff, and families as a blessing for, and thanksgiving of, those who have supported the graduates throughout their academic journey. At 9:00 am Mass this weekend we will bless our high school graduates and give thanks to God for all those who helped them get to this point in their lives. Students, register here!
