Mass of the Holy Spirit

Yesterday, September 12, Fr. Robert Pecoraro, S.J. celebrated the Mass of the Holy Spirit, a Jesuit tradition that marks the start of the academic school year.  Started in 1548 at the first Jesuit school in Messina, Sicily, the Mass of the Holy Spirit is a tradition that is almost as old as the Society of Jesus itself.  At Cheverus, the Mass of the Holy Spirit is the first all-school gathering of the year.

 

Led by their senior mentors, the Class of 2022 processed into Mass and was warmly welcomed by the entire school community.

Additionally, our Eucharistic Ministers for the 2018-2019 school year were inducted.
