Important Graduation Information!

Jul. 27, 2020

The members of the BD Class of 2020 are continually on our minds! You unknowingly experienced your last class, Mass, service project, game, competition, and performance at Bishop Dwenger due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We have tried to counter this situation with Instagram spotlights for individual seniors, a stadium lighting in the "Be The Light" campaign, individual senior names on the digital sign at the corner of Clinton and Washington Center, a Pray/Walk/Run campaign by the faculty and staff for each individual senior and a few surprises yet to come.

Still, we want to hold -- and you deserve to experience -- the end-of-year events held as part of the Bishop Dwenger (and American) traditions. Therefore, in the hopes that crowds will once again be able to gather in July, the BD Administration has secured The Embassy Theatre for the 2020 postponed Commencement to occur on the evening ofMonday, July 27! Of course, we all hope that gatherings will begin at an earlier date, but by choosing a later date, we hope to improve the chances of actually gathering and avoid another reschedule.

Please note the date (July 27, 2020) and following times in your calendar:

*Graduation Practice at 8:00 am

*Doors will open at 5:30 pm

*Senior Video to begin at 6:00 pm

*Graduates process in at 6:30 pm

If, by July 13, crowds are not permitted to gather, the administration will reconvene to consider other options.

In planning for July 27, we would like our Seniors and their families to provide some input regarding these end-of-year events.
