High School graduation is a time-honored tradition. After years of studying, exploring new opportunities and expanding your horizons, thousands of high school seniors anxiously anticipate wearing the cap and gown representing their school colors, processing towards the stage, and receiving their diploma for which they have worked so hard. But, not in 2020. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed so many aspects of our lives, including ceremonies to honor our high school graduates.

The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco wants to honor all our high school graduates by compiling a montage of senior portraits. A simple online form is available and we invite all high school seniors from our parishes in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, to submit the requested information no later than May 27, 2020 so that we can share this video across our Metropolis on Sunday, June 7, 2020. NOTE: If you encounter difficulties submitting the online form please email the following information to metropolis@sanfran.goarch.org:
