There were also words of encouragement and prayers for the graduates. The event culminated with the traditional cutting of cake and a time of fellowship among those present.
A special presentation of a Certificate of Accreditation from the City of Buenos Aires was made during the ceremony. The certificate was presented to Roberto Sosa, Director of the new satellite campus of the seminary. The satellite campus is functioning in the Central Argentine District.
