Dear Members of the Class of 2020,
I write to let you know that we will soon convene a student committee that will help us plan the events of Memorial Day weekend 2021. The details of those days will be determined by discussions with that committee, but we expect them to include the traditional elements of a Notre Dame Commencement—a Mass, a Convocation in Notre Dame Stadium with traditional cap and gown, college and departmental ceremonies, the Last Visit to the Grotto, and a Commencement Ball.
Please know that your parents, guardians, families and loved ones are most warmly invited to attend the Memorial Day 2021 weekend events.
We will send more information in the weeks to come.
Class of 2020, we will do all we can to make the time you will have together next May memorable. Let us look forward to when we are through the current trying circumstances and can gather together to celebrate your accomplishments.
In Notre Dame,
Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C.
