The juniors and their families and friends gathered in the Cardinal Dougherty High School auditorium recently for the Mass at which they receive their class rings. The graduating students from Our Lady of Confidence spanision also attended and received rings.
School President Father Carl Janicki celebrated the Mass, and school minister Deacon Stephen A. Guckin assisted at the altar. Members of the Class of 2011 shared the duties of greeters, readers, and altar servers.
After Communion, Diana Graeber, assistant principal of student affairs, and the junior homeroom moderators distributed the rings to each junior. The ceremony ended with the singing of the alma mater.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
