The Baccalaureate Mass is a beautiful liturgical ceremony offered in thanksgiving for the blessings God has bestowed upon the graduates and their families. Music is provided by Loyola's Chapel Choir. Graduates participate in the academic procession with faculty and administrators and must wear their gowns but not their caps or hoods. Graduates will wear full regalia (gowns, caps and hoods) only at Commencement on Saturday.

Bleacher seating is used for families and guests and shoes with flat heels are recommended.

We will provide a live stream of the Baccalaureate Mass for those unable to attend the ceremony. The link to the live stream will be available at www.loyola.edu/commencement.
