Baccalaureate Mass

The celebration of graduation from a Catholic high school is most specifically centered on Christ, and the Baccalaureate ceremony, religious in nature, finds its highest expression in union with Our Lord in the Mass. It is at this mass that we come together as a community to celebrate and pray for our graduates as they continue their journey. Please join us for the celebration of Baccalaureate Mass to be held on June 1, 2023. Each graduating senior will receive 2 tickets to the Baccalaureate Mass.
