Baccalaureate Eucharistic Liturgy 2020

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.”

After a very difficult year, we celebrate all that God has done in the life of our young people.
