Baccalaureate Mass

The Baccalaureate Mass is a time for the Xavier community to gather in thanksgiving and celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2024. We reflect on years of learning and growth to send the soon-to-be graduates into the world imbued with the fire of the Spirit. Students and guests all arrive at the same time; seats are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
