Beginning this year, OLA is establishing a parish tradition of celebrating and praying for all graduates from our parish, including graduates from public/charter schools, home schools, private schools, and Catholic schools. Graduates of eighth grade, high school, and college are all invited to be acknowledged during a parish Sunday Baccalaureate Mass. This year, we will honor our graduates during the 10:00 am live stream Sunday Mass on June 7th, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. Graduates will be recognized during the Mass to commemorate their accomplishments, and they will receive a special blessing as they move forward into a new season of life. A commemorative worship aide and program will be available, and families near and far are invited to participate via live stream on our parish YouTube channel.
Parish families, if you would like your graduate to be acknowledged and recognized during this special live stream liturgy, please provide the following information and a photograph if you wish. Information and photo must be received no later than Friday, May 29 – Unfortunately, this is a firm date to allow time for the creation of the commemorative program. Please send email to Casey Oliver at email@example.com with the subject line Baccalaureate Mass Student Information for (insert student name).
