60373May 16, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Hours before members of DePauw's Class of 2011 receive their diplomas, graduating students and their families are invited to join with faculty members, administrators and staff for a multi-faith baccalaureate service in Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church.  The program, which begins at 9:15 and lasts approximately one hour, "serves as a reminder of our Methodist heritage and a celebration of the gifts and accomplishments of our graduating students," according to P.T. Wilson, University Chaplain and senior pastor of Gobin Church.

The service will feature members of the senior class sharing readings, prayers and music to celebrate the transition from student to alumnus. The mayor of Greencaste, Sue 5736Murray, will provide an address to the class. Members of the DePauw University faculty will join in a  processional.
