Cardinal’s Medal awarded to high school graduates at Carroll and Cristo Rey
he Baccalaureate Mass is one of the final rites of passage for Catholic high school students. For many schools, the Mass serves a dual purpose, with an award ceremony and the distribution of a keepsake for students to remember their high school. Ultimately, all Baccalaureate Masses mark the last time the graduating students will attend Mass together as an entire class.
Cardinal Wilton Gregory celebrated Baccalaureate Masses with students, family and faculty from Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington and Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School in Takoma Park, Maryland, within a week from each other.
