The CBA student body, staff and faculty joined Fr. Joe O’Connor, Pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish in Baldwinsville and also Director of the Office of Vocation Promotion, to celebrate Ascension Thursday on May 10.
“Today’s holy day commemorates the 40thday after Easter when Jesus left His mission in the hands of His closest followers,” said junior Claire Nicholson in her Call to Worship. “As he did 2,000 years ago, Jesus challenges us today to pass on the Gospel to all whom we meet. May our liturgy today be a celebration of discipleship and a recommitment to our baptism when we promised to live as followers of the Lord.”
Many students participated in Mass including junior Phylicia Latorre and Sarah Dorsey who did the readings, and juniors Tommy Caputo and Chase Tesmer, who delivered the general intercessions. Gift bearers included: seniors Bridget Fallon, Vin Carno, and Alessandra Sommers. Altar Servers were Peter Assaf and Jack Little.
Members of the orchestra and the Jubilee Chorus, which includes both students and faculty, along with some instrumental and vocal soloists, provided the music for the Mass.
