Class of 2021 Senior Blessing Mass & Sweater Investiture
On Sunday, September 20th, the Class of 2021 attended the annual Senior Blessing Mass and Sweater Investiture.
The event allows our senior class and their families to come together to celebrate the mass and is one of the first of many important events to start their senior year.
Student Council Treasurer Thomas Shea ‘21 echoed this sentiment and saw it as a great springboard to start the year. “I thought the mass went well. I look forward to finding new ways to achieve the same level of camaraderie as years past in this year’s special circumstances.”
The mass was held in the Fr. Richard Elmer, C.S.B ’46 Stadium. Fr. Dennis Kauffman, C.S.B. celebrated the Mass, and it was concelebrated by our principal, Fr. Patrick Fulton, C.S.B. and Fr. John Wheeler, C.S.B. ’57, whose nephew, Joseph McComb ’21, is a member of the senior class.
Senior George Nunu found that Fr. Kauffman’s homily and message hit home with him and his CC Brothers. “I enjoyed Father's message and thought it was a good reflection leading into senior year. Catholic Central has made me into a better man. I entered as a young freshman, and throughout my years, I have developed into a man of goodness, discipline, and knowledge.”
Student Council Vice President Andrew Memmer ’21 shared the significance of the event to him and his fellow CC brothers. “Yesterday's mass was one of the first times that I, along with I'm sure many other families, have been able to attend mass in a safe environment since March. The weather was perfect, and the whole ceremony ran very smoothly. Finally, getting to see this year's seniors sporting their senior sweaters gave a glimpse into normalcy, something that has otherwise been absent for much of this year.”
We would like to thank the Mothers’ Club for their beautiful gifts and decorations for the event.
