Baccalaureate Mass

Commencement 2024

We're excited to announce Seattle University's 2024 commencement ceremonies will take place at Climate Pledge Arena on Sunday, June 9, 2024! More information for Commencement 2024 will be available on our website starting in January 2024. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2024!

An annual event during Commencement Weekend, Baccalaureate Mass is a celebration for the entire university community to give thanks for our graduating students and bless them as they complete their time at Seattle U, transitioning into the future as bearers of our university mission, leaders for a just and humane world. As a Jesuit university, we observe this in the context of a Catholic Mass, but people from all religious, secular, and spiritual identities are welcome to attend and participate in this meaningful ritual celebrating this significant transition in our students’ lives. Graduating students, family and friends, current students, faculty, and staff are all invited.
