All graduates, their guests and faculty are invited to attend the Baccalaureate Mass, a Mass of Thanksgiving for God's many blessings on DePaul's graduates.

The Mass will be held at 4 p.m. on June 8 at St. Vincent de Paul Church, 1010 W. Webster Ave.

This cherished annual event often fills up quickly. Graduating students should RSVP to attend soon on the DePaul Commencement website. Registration will close once the number of people who have signed up reaches the maximum capacity of the church.  

Seating inside the church will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

A reception at the Lincoln Park Student Center, 2250 N. Sheffield Ave., will follow the Mass for all graduates and their guests. GradImages will be available to take photos of graduates with academic regalia, family and friends.
