Just as an incoming student's experience of Santa Clara University begins with an orientation liturgy, so too does that experience end within a liturgical setting, the Commencement Liturgy. Students of all faiths, their families, and friends are cordially invited to participate in this celebration. It is a time for giving thanks and praise for the gifts given and received while at Santa Clara and for asking a blessing on the graduates and their futures. The Commencement Liturgy is at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 11, 2010 in the Leavey Center.
