Seniors returned to the Little Sanctuary for the first time, all together, this year. The Class of 2021 processed in silence to the last chapel of the year.
During the service, Senior Warden Luke Schramm ’21 invested George Clessuras ’22 as next year’s warden. Math Department Chair Colleen Dunn noted in her homily: “I knew this would be emotional because it’s been 450 days almost since we’ve all been in this same space. … Having y’all here with me means a lot!”
The Rev. Rachelle Sam offered a prayer for the Class of 2021:
“Loving God, We give thanks for the Class of 2021 and the many gifts and talents that are revealed by its members. As they prepare to graduate from this school, we ask that you keep them safe. Bless and guide them wherever they may be. Strengthen them when they stand, comfort them when they are discouraged or sad, raise them up when they fall. Guide them with a strong moral compass and open hearts. Bless them with new opportunities and strengthen them for the challenges ahead. Assure them of their place in this STA community and grant their hearts a peace that passes all understanding all the days of their lives. Amen.”
After the service, underclassmen lined the street to greet them and congratulate them.
