Special Mass Recognizes Graduating Seniors

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

A special service honors graduating high school students. 

St. Mary's Catholic Church held a baccalaureate mass this morning. 

The ceremony celebrates the graduating class at McAuley High School. 

Annelise Pinjuv, a graduating senior at McAuley, says she feels honored to receive this special recognition. 

She says," It feels great. I'm very excited that we've all made it this far and I'm excited to be able to celebrate it with all of my classmates. 

Father Justin Monaghan, Pastor of St. Mary's, says that the mass also serves as a time for the students to reflect on their years in school and pray for the future. 

He says, "I hope what they have learned, and how they've been inspired, brings them forth and wherever they go, I hope they remember how they got there and keep working at it and never forget their prayer life." 

Fifteen graduating seniors from McAuley were at today's mass.
