Baccalaureate2020

On June 6, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. we will honor the High School Seniors in our diocese with a live streamed baccalaureate service. Bishop Susan Brown Snook is excited to lead us in a service filled with youth readers, musicians, and a virtual procession of the graduates. In a time where so many of the rights of passage have been lost for these young adults, it is our goal to give them a vibrant celebration of both their achievements and their faith. There are four ways that youth are invited to participate in the baccalaureate service.

Procession of Graduates: Please submit a photo of your graduate with their name, high school, congregation name, and what they will be doing next. These should be submitted to Charlette Preslar, cpreslar@edsd.org no later than May 20, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

Commissioning Video: Part of the service will include a commissioning of the graduates. There are two responses from the graduates in that video segment. Youth should submit one horizontal (landscape) video of them saying the following two responses. “I am ready.” “I do so pledge. And I promise to work, pray, and give of my resources for the spread of the kingdom of God.” Our goal is to have as many youth as possible to submit a video for this segment. They may be taken on a cell phone or a laptop and emailed to Charlette Preslar, cpreslar@edsd.org no later than May 25, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

Readers and Music: Youth who would like to participate as a reader for the service should contact Charlette Preslar, cpreslar@edsd.org right away. Multicultural Readers are encouraged! Readers will be assigned no later than May 18, 2020. Musicians should submit emails to Christ Tumilty, ctumilty@edsd.org with the name of their proposed piece, and whether they would like to submit a vocal or instrumental piece. We will work to incorporate a diverse assortment of musical offerings.

Youth Planning Team: One of the things we would like to offer as part of this is a youth designed and run after-party! Interested Seniors are invited to be part of the planning team. The team will meet on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. to start the process. Please email Charlette Preslar, cpreslar@edsd.org for the Zoom link.
