Following the ceremony, there will be cupcakes for you to take with you to enjoy and a picture station to take a few pictures with your graduate. We ask that you DO NOT take any pictures during our Prayer Service. However, you are free to take as many pictures as you would like during the graduation ceremony. Each student will be assigned a pew for their families/friends to sit together. One pew should comfortably fit 6 people.
This is a very exciting time for you and your families. The faculty and staff of Mother Brunner wish to thank you for allowing us the privilege of teaching and providing your student a strong foundation of faith. As they go forth as Disciples of Christ, we hope they remember to keep God at the center of their life so that he can continue to order their steps to fulfill their life purpose. We wish our 2023 graduates the best in their future endeavors and will always keep them in our thoughts and prayers as they move on to a new journey.

All God’s Blessings,

Ms. R. Johnson, Fr. Tony Fortman, and the 6th-8th Grade Teachers
