June 24 On June 24, 1891, the 45th annual commencement was held at Saint Vincent College. Commencement exercises began at an early hour. "Punctually at 5.15 o'clock all assembled in the Abbey church to attend solemn High Mass of thanksgiving. After Mass and an intermission of about twenty minutes, both students and professors came together in the College Hall where the programme announced in our June number was carried out.... After breakfast they received their traveling-money, bid another hasty farewell to prefect, professors and to one another, and by 8.30 the College halls were deserted." Saint Vincent Journal.
