    Baccalaureate Mass for The Class of 2021

    May 26, 2021

    The University's Baccalaureate Mass for The Class of 2021 premiered on May 22. 

    "Today we pray with and for you, the Class of 2021," said celebrant Rev. Herbert B. Keller, S.J., vice president for Mission and Ministry at The University of Scranton. "We ask God that He will bless you as you go forward from this place."

    Father Keller remembered when he was serving as interim president during the Class of 2021's first year at Scranton, and he noted just how much the members of the class have changed since that first day.

    "As a class, you came to an awareness of the presence of the Lord during your own experience of passion in dealing with COVID, experiencing the suffering and death of loved ones, or the inconvenience of quarantine or isolation. ... You discovered that love was stronger than any illness, and you discovered those gifts by staying together."
