The Class of 2019 will celebrate its Baccalaureate liturgy on Friday, May 24, at 6:00 PM in the Roncalli Family Room. Tickets are not required to attend.

The graduation ceremony will be held for the Class of 2019 on Saturday, May 25, at 9:00 AM on the Roncalli campus. Weather permitting, the ceremonies will be held in the stadium and no ticket will be required for admission. Should weather not allow for an outside ceremony, graduation will be held in the RHS gymnasium and a ticket will be required for admission into the gymnasium.

If the weather is in question, a final decision whether to hold the ceremony inside or outside will be made no later than 7:00 AM and will be available on the school’s website. Please do not call the school for this information. Please access this information via the school’s website.

Prestige/LifeTouch is the official photographer for Roncalli High School. Please know that pictures will be available for viewing and purchase online. Photos will be online approximately 10 days after the ceremony. You can find them here. Contact Kevin Banich for questions regarding pictures.

Graduation questions may be directed to Kelly Meyer.

PARKING

We remain super excited about the construction of our new gymnasium which is coming along nicely and right on schedule. One challenge has been the number of parking spaces temporarily lost during the process. It would behoove people to consider carpooling to the baccalaureate and graduation ceremonies. We will work diligently with our security and parking staff to make the parking process go as smoothly as possible but please know there will be challenges.

SERVICE HOURS RECOGNITION FOR MEMBERS OF CLASS OF 2019

Roncalli High School asks its students to complete hours of service each semester. The members of the Class of 2019 have been completing service hours for the past four years, and many have "gone the extra mile" in serving the needs of others. A total of 89 seniors have received their service cord, which signifies a student completing 50% more than the expected hours. Among that group, the following students have exceeded all expectations and clearly answered the call to "be Christ to others" by performing over 400 hours of service over the past four years. They will be honored with their name on a plaque that hangs in the school’s cafeteria and receive their service cord to wear at graduation.

  • Maggie Schoening 400 hours
  • Isabel Elsener 401 hours
  • Jacob Sebek 420 hours
