Two hundred and eighty five soon-to-be Jesuit High School alumni convened in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs on Saturday, May 20, for their Baccalaureate Mass. The group is the largest senior class in Jesuit history.

The Mass was led by Jesuit president Fr. Christopher Fronk, S.J. He was assisted by school chaplain Fr. Kevin Dyer, S.J., and Frs. Billy Huete, S.J., and Donald Saunders, S.J.

Following Mass, a reception was held in the Student Commons.
