Celebrating the Class of 2024

Baccalaureate Masses and graduation exercises celebrated in the Diocese’s six high schools sent forth members of the Class of 2024 in late May and early June. We offer our congratulations and best wishes to each class of graduating seniors, whom we recognize below, along with a selection of photos from commencement ceremonies.

Addressing the graduates as he celebrated Baccalaureate Masses and spoke at graduation ceremonies, Bishop Timothy Senior encouraged them to feel gratitude for their education.

“Call to mind that for which you are most grateful in this wonderful experience of a Catholic high school education. This whole experience happens because a lot of people work together to make it possible for you. They love you so much that they want you to have the experience of a Catholic education,” he said.

“Above all else, remember the reason that this school exists: so that you can come closer to Jesus Christ and to know His love for you,” the bishop told the graduates. “Our relationship with God becomes the compass for our life; follow what you have learned about Him…let Him know what is going on in your life, ask Him to guide you. The Holy Spirit is with you.”
