Candids from before, during and after the Class of 2022 freshman photo, East Campus Duke University, August 22nd, 2018

Congratulations, Class of 2022!
Join us for a celebratory Baccalaureate Mass.

Saturday, May 7th
4:30 p.m., Baldwin Auditorium

All graduating students — undergrad and graduate alike! — and their families are invited to the Duke Catholic Center’s annual Baccalaureate Mass. Join us in celebrating and giving thanks for your time at Duke!  


Mass will be a Sunday vigil service.
Attire is “Sunday best” — no graduation gowns needed.

Mass will be celebrated in Baldwin Auditoriumlocated on East Campus.
Parking can be found off East Campus or in the lots around Epworth Dorm.

Special Note:
Many students choose to attend both the University’s Baccalaureate service and the DCC’s Baccalaureate Mass. The Baccalaureate Mass is a way for the Catholic community to congratulate and thank all of our graduating students in a special way. It is more personal and community-focused than the larger university baccalaureate services.

A Little BONUS Material for Graduates…
A Special Graduation Message:

As we approach graduation season, here is a Commencement Address by George Saunders given in several years ago at Syracuse University that may inspire you if your local speaker is less than engaging or if you just want to be inspired again. We highly recommend this one!

Sunday Mass on Graduation Weekend:

There will only be 8PM Mass in Duke Chapel on Commencement Sunday.
