April 24, 2015
I am pleased to invite you to the Xavier Baccalaureate Mass that will be held in the Cintas Center on Friday, May 15 at 5:00p.m. It would be a wonderful tribute to our students and their families to have faculty and staff join in prayer on the eve of their graduation. Accordingly, I invite all faculty and staff to participate in the procession at the beginning of the liturgy as well as to wear academic regalia, if appropriate and available. Academic dress is not required for participation in the procession.
In order to plan ahead for enough reserved seating for faculty and staff, please RSVP to Katie Minning in the Center for Faith and Justice at minning @xavier.edu by Ma y 12 if you plan to attend. Those participating in the procession should arrive at the Cintas Center at 4:15p.m. the day of the liturgy.
The impact all of you have had on our students during their time at Xavier is tremendous. Many students speak of the Baccalaureate Mass as a significant and special event that helps bring their time at Xavier to a conclusion. I am sure your presence that evening would be deeply appreciated by our students and their families.
