Baccalaureate at Catholic universities takes place as a Mass giving thanks for the blessings of the graduates with prayers for their continued success in life. This Mass includes the traditional Baccalaureate sermon and may include other ceremonies.
All graduates are invited to this Mass regardless of religious background. Although communion is reserved to Catholics in good standing, participation in the Scripture readings, prayers, hymns, and intercessions is considered appropriate and is encouraged. Your presence and participation is most welcome. Graduates may wear their robes to Baccalaureate.
