From Bishop Robert C. Morlino:

I was recently invited, as I am each year, to celebrate Mass for and take part in the graduation ceremony for the graduating seniors at St. Ambrose Academy, in Madison. I offer the following valedictory remarks from two outstanding young men who were recently graduated, as they exemplify their readiness for Catholic lay mission.

Justin Hineline, whose remarks are published here, will attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison, beginning this fall, and will be enrolled in the Army ROTC curriculum.

William Donohoe, whose remarks will be published in the next issue, will be attending the United States Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Md. reporting later this month.

Let us keep both Justin and William and all our recent graduates in our prayers as they enter this next phase of their lives and continue to discern God's will for their future.
