Baccalaureate Mass


Alice P. McDermott Center

4301 Broadway
San Antonio, TX 78209

The University of the Incarnate Word will hold its Spring Baccalaureate Mass on Friday, May 14th at 5:00 p.m. in the Alice P. McDermott Convocation Center.

 The history of the Baccalaureate ceremony is firmly entrenched in the medieval European custom of presenting graduating candidates for the degree of Bachelor (bacca) with laurels (lauri) or recognition of their achievement. It is traditionally a religious service of celebration and thanksgiving for the time the graduates (Bachelor and advanced degrees) have devoted to growing in wisdom at a place of education.

We give thanks for your sacrifices and accomplishments as a student - and now graduate of the University of the Incarnate Word. A reception will be held immediately following the Baccalaureate Mass in the Student Engagement Center hosted by the Provost's Office. Tickets are not required for the Baccalaureate Mass or the reception, but please RSVP by Wednesday, December 12th.

 Please note that while tickets are not required, seating is limited due to fire regulations. Doors to the McDermott Center will be closed once capacity is reached. A maximum of 7 guests per graduate is permitted. Thank you for your understanding & assistance with this matter.

Rain plan: Graduates will line up under the visitors’ side of the football stadium (closest to the McDermott Center). Complete Details are provided in the RSVP information at the link below.
