Welcome to the Class of 2020 Graduation Celebration Schedule
There has never been a year in our school’s 150 year history quite like this one. On the other hand, there is no class as well-prepared to take on the challenges of our age like the SPSV Class of 2020. They started together four years ago and built their class community on a foundation rooted in their faith in God. They have supported each other through difficult times and this year they have led SPSV with pride. Despite having their senior year turned upside down, they forged forward and mastered the art of distance learning. They sacrificed memories with friends while they sheltered in place to keep those most vulnerable in their community safe. They have demonstrated resilience and determination and will, without a doubt, go on to make positive changes in our world. We couldn’t be more proud of our Bruin Class of 2020. Please join us in celebrating their success at the following ceremonies and events.
Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 Graduation Day Celebrations
Our faculty, staff, and student speakers presented our graduating seniors with a meaningful, pre-recorded, graduation commencement ceremony and then came together for a community celebration, for a social distanced, conferment of diplomas with the Bishop on campus. View this video for the coverage.
The Commencement Celebration will premiere on our branded YouTube Channel at 10AM on May 23, 2020. We recommend the graduates, friends and extended community subscribe to this page for up to the minute reminders and links.
The Live Stream of our Conferment of Diplomas will begin at 12PM, May 23rd, 2020. The Most Reverend Bishop Jaime Soto of the Diocese of Sacramento will be on campus to hand-deliver each graduate’s diploma via a drive-thru event at the front of the school campus. This event is for the graduates only and their immediate family members riding in a single car. Cars will be checked in at the entrance.
In an effort to protect all of our Bruin community and the communities in which they live, all attendees, in cars, and our faculty and staff working the event must wear masks. This event will be broadcast live all extended family members and the school community to enjoy.
May 1st, 2020 Cap & Gown Pick Up
On May 1st, typically known as college #decisionday, our seniors enjoyed a drive through graduation cap and gown pick up where they were presented with a personalized packet complete with their traditional SPSV medallion, a lawn sign, cap and gown and all honor cords. These videos celebrate the enthusiasm of our faculty, staff and families for our graduates.

Thursday, May 14th, 2020 Baccalaureate Mass
Being apart physically will not stop us from gathering virtually to honor God's great work in our community this year, especially the accomplishments of our graduating Class of 2020.
Enjoy the recorded liturgy of our SPSV Baccalaureate Mass broadcast from St. Catherine of Siena Parish, Vallejo on Thursday, May 14th at 12:00PM. You may follow along with the corresponding 2020 Baccaluareate Worship Program.
A special thank you to St. Catherine's Catholic Church for allowing us to celebrate Mass and broadcast this liturgy to our SPSV community.
The entire faculty and staff are actively working to make these events special for our graduating Bruins during this most challenging time. We thank all of you for your patience and kind words while we continue to make adjustments and work within our permitted guidelines set by Bishop Soto and the Diocese of Sacramento.
Thank you senior parents, you and your Bruins continue to be in our prayers and the prayers of our faculty and staff. #arisetoday
