Holy Cross' Final Graduation

Holy Cross School held its final graduation Mass yesterday evening. Twenty-two students picked up their diplomas and most of them will be moving on to various Catholic high schools in the fall. This was Holy Cross' 110th commencement exercise, with Fr. Tom Wheeland presiding over the last 26.


Perhaps the most moving part of the evening came when the graduates turned to face their families and friends and sang Michael W. Smith's "Friends."


And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say "never"
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends

In spirit only, Dr. K.

We did have a visiting clergyman, though. Deacon Dan Hurley of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was there to help hand out diplomas, as one of the graduates is a member of his parish.
