Graduates of Fr. Tolton Catholic High School participated in a graduation ceremony Friday at Fr. Tolton Catholic High School. Graduates and their guests arrived in 5-minute increments over the course of the afternoon and the school limited each graduate to six guests to allow enough space for social distancing.

Participants walked across the stage as Tim A. Scherrer, academic dean, read their names, and Principal Gwenn Roche presented the graduates with their diplomas. “We absolutely wanted to make graduation as special as we possibly could, even within the confines of the local health guidelines,” said Jill McIntosh, interim president of the school.

Graduates were also given several opportunities for taking photos with their guests. In addition to the graduation, the school held a Baccalaureate Mass on Thursday night involving only the graduates.
