Christopher Collins, S.J., assistant to the president for mission and identity, will preside.

Steve Schoenig, S.J., associate professor of history and rector of Bellarmine House of Studies, will deliver the homily.

SLU’s Baccalaureate Mass is traditionally celebrated as an opportunity for the university community to give thanks to God for gifts and opportunities bestowed upon the graduates, for the growth and success they have achieved, and as a time to pray for their continued protection as they are sent out for the greater glory of God and the service of humanity.
