Rites & Rituals

The annual rites and rituals of JDCHS are important elements in the school’s calendar. These rituals create an outward expression of our commitment to excellence, community and living the school’s motto, Spiritus Donorum. The annual sequence of these rites also includes all the honors that are provided to our graduating classes. Each year the official rites and rituals of Juan Diego are crafted, as they have been every year since the school began. New rites are added only after discernment about their long lasting contribution to our campus.

The Rites and Rituals include:

  • The Baccalaureate Mass – May 19, 2020
  • Commencement Exercises – May 23, 2019
  • The Bishop’s Mass
  • The Junior Rite of Commissioning
  • The Feast of Saint Juan Diego and our annual letter exchange
