As senior year of high school winds down, thoughts turn toward end of the year festivities. Senior breakfast. Mock graduation. Senior trip. Beach week. Graduation. Baccalaureate.
Wait. What was that last one?
I've been debating whether or not to go to baccalaureate with most of my class. Baccalaureate is described by dictionary.com as being a religious service, so you can see where my hesitation comes from.
I've talked to friends about what baccalaureate really is, and they think that it will be a Christian service as opposed to a generic spiritual service. The internet accounts of what baccalaureate is are all contradictory, and I'm not familiar with anyone who could tell me what my school's baccalaureate entails. I also have two friends performing at baccalaureate, and I'm not sure if I should go to supprt them or stay home and wish them luck.
It would be really helpful if you guys could share any baccalaureate experiences, especially how religious it was, and if you could give me your thoughts on what I should do. I feel like if it isn't too preachy and such, I could suffer through it to listen to my friends perform, but otherwise I think I'll just skip it.
