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 at 5 p.m. on June 1, 2023 at San Francisco Solano. Each graduating senior will receive 2 tickets to the Baccalaureate Mass. 

Please refer to the Parent Student Handbook for guidelines on Dress Code for this special event. Please refer to the Baccalaureate Mass webpage for more details and up-to-date information regarding this event.  Specific questions may be directed to the Assistant Principal for Mission Integration, Patrick Visconti at viscontip@smhs.org.   


Dress code for ladies – dresses or pantsuits, dress shoes, and your graduation gown (no cap, no cords). 

Dress code for gentlemen – dress slacks, dress shoes, collared shirt, tie and your graduation gown (no cap, no cords).


SMCHS Legacy

Here at SMCHS, we now have students who are second generation graduates! The alumni department would like to recognize Class of 2023 Legacy families during the Baccalaureate Mass by having their parent(s) who graduated from SM present the student with a stole to signify that they are a legacy graduate. The stole will have the SM crest on one side, with the graduating years of the parent(s) and graduating child on the other.  ​


Must have at least 1 parent who is an SM graduate

Please email lopezb@smeaglefoundation.org to confirm your child’s legacy status. ​
