CONGRATULATIONS & GOD BLESS THE RONCALLI HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 2019

Class of 2019 Graduates

The Roncalli High School Class of 2019 celebrated a beautiful Baccalaureate liturgy in our Family Room last Friday. We extend a special thank you to all of the priests from our South Deanery parishes that joined us for the liturgy. The Class of 2019, joined by family members and friends, celebrated commencement exercises in Roncalli Stadium last Saturday. We felt blessed to be outdoors, as it allowed all who wished to attend the ceremonies to do so.

If you missed speeches by the Valedictorian and Salutatorian you can wath them and the entirety of the 2019 comencement ceremony on YouTube.
