Family and friends gathered this morning to bless our Class of 2022 graduates at the annual Baccalaureate Mass to receive a blessing from our Maryknoll community as they embark on a new journey after graduating from Maryknoll School. We also recognized the families of our Maroon & Gold Society students, who have attended Maryknoll for 13+ years.
Class Night is a decades-old tradition of celebrating our graduating seniors and their accomplishments. Class awards are presented in the historic Hawaii Theater, where many graduating classes held their Class Night. This is also the event where the senior class passes on the mantel and torch to the new senior class, who will soon replace them.
As per our Maryknoll tradition, seniors and juniors exchange a lei and a candle to mark their best wishes to the seniors and the light that juniors students are now charged to carry as Maryknoll seniors.
Tomorrow, we celebrate our Class of 2022 graduation at the Neal Blaisdell Center at 5:30 pm. As a reminder, tickets are required to attend, but lei giving for graduation will be open to the general public in the concourse area between the Exhibition Hall and Arena.
