At Baccalaureate Mass, Bishop Tells Graduates to Strive for Ultimate Achievement as Disciples of Christ
Bishop Ronald Gainer’s message to the Class of 2020 opened with an honest recognition of their loss at the end of their senior year, and the words on many of their minds: It’s just not fair.
“It’s not fair that every graduating class gets to walk to Pomp and Circumstance, and the Class of 2020 graduates, minus the pomp and under the most unconventional circumstances,” he said.
“I recognize and I sympathize with you, that almost all of the normal senior activities – activities that you looked forward to for years – were lost during this pandemic. Even the normal informal opportunities to say goodbye to classmates and friends have vanished during this time,” he said.
