Many Maine Parishes to Honor Graduating High School Seniors in June

To honor the hard work, dedication, and achievement of graduating high school seniors in their communities, many Maine parishes will celebrate graduation Masses over the next two weeks, giving parishioners a chance to join in their joyous accomplishments and wish them well.

Many of the Masses will be followed by barbecues, receptions, or breakfasts, and others will feature a procession of graduates.
