If we circle the cars in the parking lot, build a podium in the center and live stream the Mass, everyone can still attend graduation. Innovation rules for the Class of 2020!
Once again, I have to say I am so impressed by how school officials and parents have re-invented graduation. Two weeks after Saint Joseph Academy (see previous post) our grand daughter graduated from Saint Bernadette’s School in Westlake. The new celebration included awesome Fathead Photos of the graduates’ kindergarden photos, a car parade with friends and families, and a socially distant Mass in the gym.
After Mass, the students headed to the parking lot to join their families, receive their certificates and cheer each other on. (Since I was there, naturally, they all had family photographs taken too!)
We all enjoyed the beautiful weather, the celebration, and time together, one more time.
Congratulations to all. I can’t wait to see how you celebrate 2024!!
