Fr. Chuck Frederico, Vocation Director for the Maryland, New England and New York Provinces, celebrated the Solemnity Mass of the Ascension with the Xavier High School community. In his homily, he posed the readings as having the following two themes: a revelation of hope and a call to holiness. He asked the students to reflect on their experience of the school year as they move on to the summer and to recognize God’s hope for their journey in life. He urged them to examine the ways that God calls them toward holiness and emphasized that their reflection on these themes could reveal an invitation by God to serve Christ as a Jesuit.
