Congratulations to the Catholic School Districts Graduating Class of 2020! Thank you to all who have made graduation celebration meaningful and memorable amidst the pandemic challenges. We invite you to take the time and pray this little prayer for our graduates:
God our Father,
we give you thanks for bringing these young people
to this special moment in their lives.
We ask you to accompany them
as they face new adventures and challenges.
May the paths they take always lead to you
and to the eternal joy that is their inheritance through Baptism.
We make this prayer to you in the name of Jesus your Son.

Graduation events range from drive-and-walk-through celebrations, where students can collect their diploma, walk a stage or red carpet and have their photo taken, to student awards on social media. All schools will have a unique online grad program featuring well wishes, student speeches and tributes to the graduating class.
