Baccalaureate Mass for the Class of 2021

Sunday, May 16, 2021 | 5 p.m. Eastern Time
We gathered together to unite our hearts in prayer in the Baccalaureate Mass for the Class of 2021. As we prayed together, we celebrated the many gifts of the class, gave thanks for all the class has learned and experienced, and asked for God's abundant blessings upon each graduate, as the next steps of their journeys unfold.
