Cabrini University celebrated its Class of 2020 on Sunday, May 17, hosting two Virtual Conferral of Degrees events amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 507 degrees were conferred on 324 undergraduate and 183 graduate students during the online ceremony.
“The Class of 2020 will always be a special group in Cabrini’s history, whose achievements stand as beacons of hope, faith, and resiliency in a time of worldwide crisis,” said Cabrini President Donald B. Taylor, PhD.
As part of the degree conferrals, Cabrini’s Director of Campus Ministry and Chaplain, Rev. Carl F. Janicki, prepared a video blessing for the graduates.
“Today, you are recipients of a Cabrini University degree, an Education of the Heart,” Janicki said. “May you find in the lessons you have learned through success, and most importantly, through setbacks, the wisdom to create: systems of equity, a life of harmony and peace with all creation, the courage to be agents of change in a world which desperately, now more than ever, needs your passion, gifts, and talents to bring about global healing.”
Adding to the festivities was a virtual toast to the Class of 2020, featuring congratulatory videos from Cabrini alumni, faculty, and staff, which was sent to the graduates and aired on social media on Thursday, May 14. ~ cabrini.edu website To watch the virtual toast video click here
