The pandemic has wrought many changes in life at YDS and Berkeley. Both institutions are responding with steadfast faith and creative virtual events. Drawing on the considerable skills of the YDS Communications and IT departments, Berkeley has fashioned a beautiful Commencement Evensong service that honors the Class of 2020. From the Invitatory to the concluding hymn “Lord, you give the Great Commission,” the artfully edited video includes beautiful music by music director Aaron Tan, student cantors, and the Berkeley House pick-up choir, an inspiring sermon from Dean George, awards and prizes, and a wealth of inspiring images of worship life in both St. Luke’s Chapel and Marquand. The program concludes with a whimsical “Senior Tribute” slideshow capturing the joy of student life over the past three years. The service airs at 4:00pm on May 16, 2020.

We are profoundly proud of our graduates and look forward to sending them off with our prayers and blessings.
