Congratulations to our newest graduates who received their diplomas at the PNC Pavilion at Riverbend Music Center on Saturday, May 22.
Valedictorian Anna Rahner and staff member Mrs. Jenni Tumser were nominated by the Class of 2021 to speak at the graduation ceremony. Anna challenged her classmates to “Be not afraid.” She said, “You will not find the words ‘be safe’ in scripture. What you will find is ‘Be not afraid.’ Be not afraid to live out your faith… Be not afraid to love God by being grateful for the present moment…Be not afraid to love your neighbor through your own actions.”
After the awarding of diplomas, Mr. Mueller sent the graduates forth, saying, “We have been truly blessed with the intellect, talents, energy, dedication and enthusiasm of these young adults. They have grown in knowledge and faith. As we send them forth now as alumni, we ask the Lord to bless each of them in all their future endeavors and to help them to continue to grow towards Full Stature in Christ.”
Congratulations to all the members of the Class of 2021, including these special award winners:
Archbishop McNicholas Memorial Award

Be not afraid to live out your faith… Be not afraid to love God by being grateful for the present moment…Be not afraid to love your neighbor through your own actions.
