All-System Mass 2017

Each year, Beckman hosts an all-system Mass. All-system refers to the Eastern Iowa System of Catholic Schools. This group of schools includes all of the Catholic schools within the Western Dubuque School District (La Salle, Hennessy, Seton, Aquin, Xavier, and Beckman). The principals of these schools meet monthly. Beckman also invites other area Catholic schools that "feed" into Beckman like St. Mary Manchester and St. Mary Guttenberg. 

Mass was celebrated by Archbishop Jackels and concelebtrated by Father Kremer, Father Vorwald, and Father Conway. Archbishop Jackels spoke about World Day for the Poor and encouraged students to consider how they can help others in need. It is powerful to be part of a group of hundreds of students and to share in the joy of Mass.
