The next Graduation Celebration May 5 3:30-5:30pm Location: St. Bart's Decatur
The first Sunday in May, we come together to celebrate our graduating seniors. All youth in middle and high school, their families, and friends travel from across the Diocese for the occasion. Registration is available on the calendar page. You can find an event flyer on our event resources page.
A contemporary Youth Led Liturgy starts at 3:30pm. Young adults come to lead music and preach. We are intentional about selecting a young adult that can shed some of their wisdom on the current graduating class. The young adults involved truly care about these youth, and they want to share their love and life experience with them as they prepare for the new journey. Bishop Wright attends the event and leads the community in a Blessing of the Seniors. He also stays after the service to spend some extra time with our young people.
Following the Eucharist, we celebrate with a reception.
