Just about every pew of the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tamaqua was filled as over 50 Tamaqua Seniors attended their Baccalaureate ceremony Sunday evening.
The Tamaqua Baccalaureate ceremony, a Ministry of the Tamaqua Area Ministerium, is a service of worship in celebration of and thanksgiving for lives dedicated to learning and wisdom.
During the sermon, The Rev. John A. Frink, of St. Jerome Church, stated farewell to all the seniors, encouraging them to stay the course. He added, "You have nothing to fear."
