In the Catholic Dominican tradition, we invite all graduating seniors and their families to thank God with a Baccalaureate Mass on Saturday, May 6 at 9:30 a.m. in St. Dominic Chapel. All graduates who attend receive a cross to wear from our University President Sister Peg Albert, OP, and Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs, Susan Shelangoskie, as a reminder that the God who loves us all is with them as the students move to the next step of their life journey, wherever it may lead.
The meaning of the word Baccalaureate is “sermon to the graduates.” This year’s preacher and presider is Fr. Michael Newman OSFS, Siena Heights’ chaplain and pastor of Holy Family Parish, Adrian Michigan. In addition, the Siena Heights Chamber Singers will be leading the worship music.
Please register yourself, family and guests by completing the form to the right . There is no limit to the number of people to invite. We need to get an approximate number of attendees, but all are welcome to Baccalaureate Mass including those who are not registered.
