On the Feast of the Holy Trinity, our parish celebrated the joyous occasion of the graduation of our Class of 2019 high school seniors at the 11:00 AM Liturgy. In his homily, Fr. Assaad addressed the meaning of the Holy Trinity, and he reminded the new graduates embarking upon their futures that God will always be ready to help them if they call upon His Name. Our pastor offered great encouragement by reminding the graduates that not only are their parents proud of them, but our entire parish community is proud! We have watched these young graduates grow up in our parish. Fr. Assaad said, “You did your First Communion here, and you have served in the choir and as altar servers.” Fr. Assaad went on to say that in college, the graduates will meet people who are both good and bad influences. He told the graduates to bring home a college degree, not a boyfriend, a girlfriend, or a baby. The parents were so happy with the positive and encouraging message that Fr. Assaad gave to our Class of 2019 graduates. We celebrated their achievements after Liturgy with a reception in the Parish Hall. We are all praying for their future success!
Class of 2019 Graduates: Gaelle ElKhoury, Cibel Semaan, Anthony Chamoun, Christy Elias, Maya Elias, Anthony Farhat
