The Graduation Mass


On Saturday, May 27th, the JMJ Homeschoolers had their Graduation Ceremony at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa. The celebration honored the graduates of the year 2017, who are a part of the Homeschooling Community. There were four twelfth grade graduates: Shawn Nichole DeSantis, Daniel James Lynn, Raymond Otis McCullough, Madelyn Marie Schiaffino; and three eight grade graduates: Gianna Maureen Monastra, Anthony Charles Redmond, Garrett Edward Touhill. The ceremony began with the Holy Mass, which took place at St. Anne Chapel. The main celebrant of the Eucharist was Fr. Timothy Tarnacki OSPPE and Rev. Monsignor Robert Biszek was also concelebrating. The liturgy also honored the First Communicants and Confirmandi, who received these Sacraments in this year. At the end of the Mass, the first communicants crowned the Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as a sign of our deep devotion to our Mother, especially in this month of May.


The second part of the celebration took place at the Cafeteria


The second part of the celebration took place at the Cafeteria, where the graduates received their diplomas and made their final speeches. This event ended the school year for the Homeschooling community of parents and children, who meet regularly at our Shrine twice a month.

Fr. Timothy Tarnacki OSPPE
