A total of 164 candidates for graduation will have their undergraduate or graduate degree conferred during a special, virtual degree ceremony on Sunday, May 17 at 2 p.m.


The event led by President Rev. Patrick T. Ferry, Ph.D. and Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dr. William R. Cario is being held in advance of an in-person fall semester commencement in The Chapel of the Holy Trinity in December.

“I pray for each and every graduate as I sign their diploma,” said Ferry, president of the university founded in 1963. “The faculty and administration is so proud of the hard work, dedication and resiliency that these young men and women have displayed during this challenging and uncommon time,” Ferry added.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science graduates account for the largest number at 125, while 39 students will receive their master’s degree.
