Medina churches want to bring back baccalaureate service

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 8 March 2018 at 4:24 pm

MEDINA – The Medina Area Association of Churches is working with the Student Association to bring back baccalaureate, a religious service for impending high school graduates.

The service is scheduled for June 10 at a site to be determined. The service will be largely student led, said Vince Iorio, pastor of the Calvary Tabernacle Assembly of God.

Iorio has been with Calvary for 11 years and Medina hasn’t had baccalaureate during that time. Some communities have the service, which are optional for students and often located in a church or off campus, but sometimes the services are at school auditoriums.

Dan Doctor, Medina Central School’s director of community outreach, is the speaker for baccalaureate.

The MAAC is calling the event a “moving forward” service, Iorio said.

“We want the graduates to know they aren’t going out alone, that God is going with them and God has a plan for their lives,” he said. “We want them to take that with them.”
