On Wednesday, May 20, at 6:30 p.m. Holy Family Catholic High School celebrated our class of 2020 graduates through a special socially distanced Baccalaureate & Commencement Mass hosted at our outdoor track. Graduates and their families experienced the once-in-a-lifetime event from the safety of their own vehicles, spaced around the perimeter of the track, alongside their fellow classmates.
Following the preliminary Baccalaureate & Commencement Mass, two separate moving stages on opposite end of the track containing a podium and graduation décor will move from car to car as each student’s name is called. In front of both their household and high school families, they will then get their special moment to temporarily step out of their vehicle, receive their long-awaited diploma and handmade medallion of the Holy Family cross from a tabletop easel, take a commemorative photo, and cross the stage alone – all while experiencing an unforgettable academic milestone in a COVID-safe way.
A quality livestream captured with multiple cameras will be available on the Holy Family website for all graduating seniors’ loved ones and other community members to view, in lieu of the opportunity to attend in-person.
Planned carefully in compliance with guidelines provided to schools by the Minnesota Departments of Health and Education and organized with guidance from the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and local officials, the Baccalaureate & Commencement Mass will recognize our graduating seniors while simultaneously ensuring the health and safety of each participant.
