May 15 – Baccalaureate Ceremony

2018 PVHS Baccalaureate Service

Tuesday, May 15th at 6pm

Christ Episcopal Church, Ponte Vedra Beach

Attention Seniors: A word from the Baccalaureate Organizing Committee:

Would you like to play a part in the 2018 Baccalaureate Service (recite a reading, sing a song, play an instrument)?

If so, please contact Renee Reimer at [email protected] or Sue Molm at [email protected].  Respond only if you are a senior who wants to read, sing or play an instrument at the ceremony.  Due to the limited length of the service, we will be accepting names in the order they are received so don’t delay.  There will be a meeting after Spring Break to share additional information with participants.

For clarification, Baccalaureate is an inter-faith ceremony which allows seniors time to reflect on their past years in high school.  It will include music, readings which are inspirational, patriotic or symbolic to your 2018 graduation year and pastoral messages.  Family members and friends are welcome to attend this free service.  No RSVP is required.

Seniors when you email us indicating your desire to participate, please let us know if you will read, sing or perform a musical number.  We are open to ideas and have a book of approved readings if you don’t know where to start however all selections will be screened for content and appropriateness.  Thank you.

This event is a community event and not sanctioned by Ponte Vedra High School.
