Celebrations mark graduation week
Commencement ceremonies were held on Saturday, May 7 at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. at Concordia University Chicago's Geiseman Gymnasium. In celebration, there were several events timed to help mark the occasion:
Graduating seniors of the Music Department performed a recital on Friday, May 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel of Our Lord.
The Service of Praise and Consecration was shared at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, May 7. in the Chapel of Our Lord. Those completing our Church-Worker Programs received certificates and there was a short recognition of vocation. These words of encouragement and commitment will acknowledge that all vocations-- in the church and the world-- come from our Lord and are lived in response to His love.
All alumni athletes and their fans were invited back to join the Gold Rush as they gathered to celebrate past victories and cheer on the Cougars baseball team against the Milwaukee School of Engineering in their last scheduled game of the regular season.
