Celebrating Graduation Recognition
Sometime in June. This is a chance to recognize and congratulate members of the congregation who are graduating from high school. Often, this is only a part of the overall service. High school graduation can mark a time when young adults are about to be less involved in the church community—many move out of the home and head to college or the workforce. This service is a chance to send them off with a blessing and remind them that they always have a spiritual home in the congregation. Also a chance to honor them for their hard work and perseverance in graduating.
Another type of celebration is the Bridging Ceremony, which celebrates the transition of our youth from their high school experience into young adulthood. The Bridging Ceremony focuses on maintaining the graduates' connection to Unitarian Universalism as they become adults.
