Junior Year

The Junior Unity Liturgy is a beautiful tradition at SMA, marking a Belle’s transition from young student to upperclasswoman. This transition is celebrated in the Fall with a Mass of thanksgiving for Juniors, their families, and the entire student body. During the liturgy, we bless the Juniors’ class ring, or any significant piece of jewelry with sentimental value, that serves as the physical marker of their transition into upperclasswomen. This is an incredibly meaningful event for the Junior class and their families as we gather together to celebrate their growth as Belles and thank God for the many blessings bestowed upon the SMA community.
