What do a craft brewer, an astronaut, and ’60s pop singer Darlene Love have in common?

They’re among the dozens of notable personalities giving commencement addresses at Catholic schools this spring.

With graduation season kicking into high gear, Crux looked at the websites of the nation’s more than 200 Catholic universities, colleges, and seminaries to see who’s responsible for inspiring the next generation of Catholic alums.

A few princes of the Church will offer their best advice to students:

Other notable clergy giving speeches include Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, who will give the address at Boston College. Two Jesuits are each doing double duty: the Rev. James Martin, SJ, author and editor at America magazine, at Fairfield University and Santa Clara University; and the Rev. Greg Boyle, SJ, founder of the Los Angeles anti-gang nonprofit, Homeboy Industries, at Gonzaga University and the University of San Diego.

With the Vatican’s investigation of US nuns in the history books, close to a dozen sisters from across of the theological spectrum will be give addresses.

Sister Regina Marie, former chairwoman of the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious, will speak at Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, Calif., and Sister Paula Gonzalez, “an internationally known futurist,” will speak at the College of Mount Saint Joseph in Cincinnati.

Several speakers come from the world of sports, including legendary football coach Lou Holtz speaking at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and former LA Lakers basketball superstar Magic Johnson at Xavier University of Louisiana.

Political speakers include former US Senator George Mitchell at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut, and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney will return to New Hampshire at Saint Anselm College.

On the media front, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews will speak at Saint Mary’s College of California, talk show host Charlie Rose at Georgetown University, and Watergate journalist Bob Woodward at Loyola University New Orleans.

The Catholic commencement wars have been light this year, nothing like the uproar when the University of Notre Dame invited President Barack Obama in 2009.

But the Cardinal Newman Society issued its annual report of “scandalous” speakers at Catholic schools. And in a surprising twist, some students at the Jesuit Le Moyne College have protested Dolan’s scheduled address, citing his record on clergy sexual abuse and stance on LGBT issues.

Other speakers come from the academic, nonprofit, business, and inspiring-stories sectors. As for the craft brewer and astronaut, that’s Carlos Alvarez, founder, chairman, and CEO of The Gambrinus Co., speaking at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, and Jose M. Hernandez, former NASA astronaut, who’s at Marymount California University.
