It was the end of an era for Pacelli Catholic Schools seniors Wednesday night.

Pacelli graduated 14 seniors at Queen of Angels Catholic Church.

For seniors, the moment was bittersweet.

“It’s a reality check that I’m not going to see these people anymore,” said Abby Leif.

While Leif was excited to graduate, she said it would be hard not to come back to Pacelli next year.

“Every year I’d come back and I knew what to expect,” she said. “We are like a family.”

Leif will attend the University of Minnesota-Duluth this fall.

Though students will go their separate ways, Pacelli officials say these students will be remembered.

“[They were a] small group, great kids,” Pacelli High School President Joseph Steepleton said earlier this week.
