The sixth annual Interfaith Baccalaureate Service, a religious service for graduating high school seniors, will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 12, at St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church in La Cañada. All high school graduating seniors in the area are welcome to attend and need to arrive at 6:30 p.m. for a baccalaureate orientation assembly.
E pluribus unum, the Latin for “Out of many, one”, is an American motto incorporated in the Seal of the United States in 1776. This represents one underpinning of this annual Interfaith event, a religious service for graduating seniors of diverse faith traditions sponsored by the La Cañada Flintridge Ecumenical Ministerial Assn.
We can all learn from our younger generation of high school graduates who are not tainted with elements of bigotry toward other religions. Their natural friendships with each other represent the neighborly love taught by all major faiths, as evidenced by the newly formed La Cañada High School Coexist club.
