Before processing to the Abbey Church, the graduates, faculty, and monks of Mount Angel Abbey lined up outside of the Damian Center. As they arrived they found their places with the assistance of the faculty marshall, straightened out their hoods and gowns, and enjoyed the sunshine.
Readers of the MAS Journalism blog are welcome to submit more photos from graduation for publication on the blog. Congratulations to all of our graduates!
