Members of the class of 2015, joined by Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president of the College, celebrate together in the annual Rites of Passage Ceremony in Mary Chapel. The religious and cultural ceremony marks the passage of college graduation for students from the African diaspora who have been active in worship life on campus and have served as Multicultural Peer Educators.
Faculty, staff, students and their guests celebrated the milestone together with prayer, a ceremonial passage between mentors and mentees and song.
