Baccalaureate Mass
Baccalaureate Eucharistic Liturgy

Event Memorial Auditorium

Baccalaureate Mass does not require a ticket for entry. 

All bags must be clear, or 6″ x 8″ x 1″ and smaller. There are no balloons (they cannot go through the metal detector), inflatable pool toys, banners, air horns, etc. permitted inside Memorial Auditorium. These items would obscure the view of our guests and be disruptive to the formality of the event.



  • Dress attire (shoes, dark dress socks, dress slacks, shirt, tie)
  • Clean-shaven
  • Graduation gown on top of dress attire (no cap or HNS, CSF cords allowed for Mass)
  • Only Kairos crosses/pins (no other decorations)

Seating & Entrance


The Baccalaureate Ceremony will run approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Graduate Arrival/Check-in at 6:00 pm

Graduates must arrive at 6:00 pm in order to be checked in at the front doors of Memorial Auditorium in a separate line for students. 

Doors Open/Ceremony Start

Doors will open for seating at 6:00 pm. The Mass will begin promptly at 7:30 pm, and doors will close 5 minutes prior to the start. No ticket is required for entry.


We ask that you take your seats only when your entire party is present inside Memorial Auditorium. Saving seats is not permitted – your cooperation with this policy is appreciated. Your patience is requested as the ushers assist the elderly and handicapped with special seating. 

We ask that you please cooperate with the volunteers in the Auditorium who are directing the flow of people. They are giving their time to make this event more pleasant for all. 

Late Seating

Guests who arrive after 7:25 pm will need to wait until the procession has finished before taking their seats.


Everyone will be required to go through a metal detector or be swept by a metal-detecting wand.

Uniformed officers from Sacramento Police Department and PAL America security officers will be on hand at Memorial for each event. They will work in conjunction with Memorial Auditorium to ensure the safety and success of our events. 


Bill Smith Photography will be present at both events.
