Austin Prep Begins 60th Anniversary with Convocation Liturgy
On Friday, September 9th, Austin Prep marked the official start of the academic year with the celebration of Convocation Liturgy. Austin Prep welcomed Bishop Mark O’Connell, Auxiliary Bishop of Boston, as the principal celebrant and homilist. The celebration, open to parents and livestreamed to the school community, also served as the kick-off event for Austin Prep's 60th Anniversary Celebration. You can view photos from the day here.
Complete with the pageantry expected of Convocation – including the procession of students carrying class banners, welcomed by faculty in academic regalia to the sounds of bagpipers – this year's liturgy also included a parade of flags representing the national heritages of those in our school community. Over 70 national flags were included.
