2012 Baccalaureate Mass

Graduating students and their families attended the annual Baccalaureate Mass on Friday, May 11, 2012, in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. The principal celebrant and homilist was University Chaplain and Director of Campus Ministry Rev. Jude DeAngelo, O.F.M. Conv. In his homily, Father Jude told the graduates that true happiness will not be found in isolation, autonomy, and "finding your passion," but rather in communion, self-giving love, and in the Passion of Jesus Christ. "Put an end to the lie of isolation, and we regain hope and life itself becomes an adventure to be shared and not a burden to be endured," he said. (Photos by Ed Pfueller and Matthew Barrick)
