Ready to take the next step in their journey!
Congratulations to the OLSH Class of 2019 as they prepare for graduation! Below, please find important details about the 2019 Baccalaureate Mass and Commencement Ceremony. Any important information about the event and other updates will be posted here as they become available.
Baccalaureate Mass - Thursday, May 30, 7:00 pm
The Baccalaureate Mass is an important tradition during which the Class of 2019 will receive a special blessing and celebrate its faith together as a class.
Given the limited availability of seating in the OLSH Chapel, each graduating senior will receive two (2) tickets for seating in the Chapel and two (2) tickets for seating in the OLSH Auditorium (for a live broadcast of the Mass).
Students should dress in their graduation gown, along with any appropriate regalia (i.e. NHS stoles). Caps are not worn for Mass.
Commencement - Sunday, June 2, 12:00 pm
This year's event will be the 85th graduation at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School.
Seating in the Angela Activities Center (AAC) is first-come, first-seated in areas that are not marked as "reserved". Doors to the AAC will open at 11:00 am. Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the Commencement Exercises, as seating will be suspended during the time that the graduates are processing into the AAC.
Graduation at OLSH is a formal occasion. Please refrain from bringing inappropriate items, such as balloons, beach balls, glitter, confetti, horns, noisemakers, etc. OLSH retains the right to confiscate items of this nature in order to preserve the decorum of the ceremony.
A professional photographer will be on hand to capture images of each graduate during the Mass and Commencement. He will also be available to take family (or other group) photos after both events. Photos will be available to purchase online at www.ca2photography.com/2019OLSH
shortly after June 2. Costs per photo begin at $7 and include print and digital options.
Carpooling to OLSH for both events is strongly encouraged as parking on the OLSH campus is limited. A number of parking attendants will be on hand to direct you to available/legal spaces, and we ask that you comply with their directives. Please note that parking on Woodcrest Avenue is NOT permitted. Additional handicapped parking spots have been designated; please display appropriate placard or license plate to utilize these spots.
Graduates should refer to the 2019 Commencement Guide for details on arrival times, dress code, and other important details.
