What are Scientology weekly Graduations?

Each week, usually on Friday, parishioners gather for Graduation, a time when they acknowledge their fellow parishioners who have completed a course or level of auditing. At this time, they have the opportunity to share successes in a spirited assembly that also serves to revitalize others on their progress up the Bridge. These weekly events are important congregational gatherings and usually include a guest speaker and are very lively affairs.
