A recently added end-of-the-year tradition played out again on May 29, at the School of Saints Faith, Hope and Charity, where the outgoing eighth-graders celebrated their final Mass together.

Before they split up and move on to high schools, the 20 members of Faith, Hope and Charity’s Class of 2019 took part in the Hope Ceremony, a new program for the 80-year-old Catholic school. The class marched together down the church’s center aisle and passed votive candles to the seventh-graders, who will become next year’s student body leaders.
