Baccalaureate Mass


Commencement Update - Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Based on the information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding large gatherings, Xavier will postpone Commencement. At Xavier, celebrating our graduates and all they have accomplished is important both for the students and all who have supported them. Wonderful ideas have surfaced about special ways to celebrate. Xavier will have a Commencement, even if the timing and details of those festivities are currently beyond our control. As soon as we have more details, we will share them with the Xavier community so graduates, families and friends can plan to join us for a long-awaited, truly memorable ceremony. 


All commencement participants and guests are invited to the Baccalaureate Mass at 5:00 p.m. at the Cintas Center.

Traditionally, students do not wear caps and gowns to the Mass. However, Xavier faculty are encouraged to attend the Mass and to dress in academic regalia.

Doors open at 4:00 pm. All are welcome.
