Juniors begin transition to becoming school leaders with Ring Mass

A junior shows off his new school ring following Carroll’s annual Ring Mass.

Archbishop Carroll’s juniors were feted last week during the Ring Mass, an annual tradition that marks the Class of 2025’s imminent transition to school leadership.

Carroll chaplain Father Joseph McCaffrey presided over the Mass and blessed the rings as well as the pins given to students who did not purchase rings. This year, out of 168 juniors, 50 didn’t buy rings.

Principal Mr. William Gennaro explained the significance of the Ring Mass, highlighting the school’s Catholic values.

“At Archbishop Carroll, our Catholic faith is central,” said Mr. Gennaro. “The ring ceremony, always part of a Mass, symbolizes our commitment to faith and education.”

Attendance was mandatory for juniors who wanted to attend the junior prom on April 8. Attendance was also mandatory for the faculty.

“Our teachers guide and mentor students,” said Mr. Gennaro. “It’s crucial for them to be there as juniors take on leadership roles.”
