The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on the campus of Conception Seminary College Saturday, May 13th celebrated thirty-one seminarians who completed the requirements to earn bachelor’s degrees this spring.
Conception Seminary’s annual spring commencement ceremonies also celebrated numerous seminarians and their academic achievements as they were honored with scholarships.
“Today is a great day,” said the Very Rev. Brendan Moss, OSB, President-Rector of Conception Seminary College as he welcomed those gathered for the ceremony.
Before receiving their diplomas, Fr. Xavier Nacke, OSB, delivered the commencement address, calling on the graduates to look toward the future with the eyes of faith. Drawing on quotes from Pope Francis, Fr. Xavier offered a word of “encouragement, or, might I say, a word of courage,” to the graduates.
