St. Francis College graduates

St. Francis College, is pleased to announce our Commencement activities for January 2020. The celebration takes place on Tuesday, January 21st and begins with the Baccalaureate Mass.

This SFC tradition begins at 3:00pm and takes place at St. James Cathedral Basilica, located 250 Cathedral Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Immediately following Mass, the Winter 2020 Commencement Ceremony will take place, also at St. James Cathedral Basilica. We are thrilled that our keynote address will be delivered by Professor and Chair, Marina Gair Ph.D. of the education department. This year’s Winter Valedictorian will be announced at a later time.  

Since there are many moving parts associated with the ceremony, we would like to highlight the following points:

  • Faculty and administrators attending Mass will sit in their academic attire in the first few rows on the right side of the Church.
  • Faculty and administrators not attending Mass, but choose to participate in the Commencement Procession must be in the back of the Church in academic attire by 3:45pm.
  • Staff attending the Mass and/or the Ceremony must have a ticket.  Please follow the RSVP directions below so a ticket is delivered to your office. 

As the College continues to plan and implement our Green Initiative, we will not be sending hard copy Commencement invitations and response cards via inter-office mail. To RSVP-please contact:
