Senior Candle Lighting
Wednesday, August 15, the first official day of school, seniors lit the senior candle.
Proposed by Archbishop Rummel’s Chaplain, Father Wayne Roca, SJ, the tradition of the senior candle began with the class of 1995. Following his request, student council moderator Ms. Mary Ann Robarts secured the candle and stand. These were presented to the senior class at the end of the ring ceremony. Fr. Roca’s original blessing of the senior candle has been passed down through the years.
The senior class officers took on the responsibility of hanging and lighting the senior candle. The class president is responsible for keeping the candle lit throughout the year. The idea behind the senior candle went along with the class of 1995’s theme – “Let us be the Light” – and serves as a reminder to each senior class to be that guiding light for the rest of the school. The senior candle can be found on display in the senior wing, guiding each school year.
