Catholic Diocese of Memphis Graduating Seniors; Congratulations Class of 2020

During the final weeks of May, the Catholic Diocese of Memphis High School students graduated and began their personal journeys—preparing for college life and a life of great faith and purpose.

The Catholic Schools across our Diocese foster an education centered in Christ, rooted in the Gospel and alive in the faith; leaving with an impressive record of Christian witness and service as well as academic and athletic excellence. Our Catholic schools challenge us to look beyond our own needs to the urgent needs of individuals, families and society at large.

The future engineers, doctors, teachers, priests and leaders of tomorrow received their diplomas from Christian Brothers High School, Immaculate Conception Cathedral High School, Sacred Heart of Jesus High School (Jackson, Tenn.), St. Agnes Academy and St. Benedict at Auburndale High School

What each graduate celebrated during this graduation year is not an end, but a movement forward in each of their lives. We pray for them to each find their path. Walk in the journey of faith, maturity and becoming a stronger person of God. Our graduates will demonstrate a vibrant, hope-filled spirit that proclaims to the whole world that Christ is alive and active—in our homes, parishes, school communities and in our world.

Congratulations Class of 2020. We are so proud of each and every one of you!
