On Thursday, November 7, two of our College for Continuing Studies staff, who are also veterans of the Armed Forces, joined in a Veteran’s Day celebration at Clyde Boyd Middle School in Sand Springs, Okla.
The restoration of Benedictine Hall’s four turrets represents the next chapter in St. Gregory’s University’s history.
The yellowing, black-and-white photos tell the story well. Monks from the Order of St. Benedict stand beside construction workers as the cornerstone for a new building is placed. The year is 1913, and the building is Benedictine Hall, the gothic-style edifice that would become the center of learning and life on St. Gregory’s University’s Shawnee campus.
The turret restorations are finished, and St. Gregory’s is ready to celebrate. The university will mark the completion of restoration work on Benedictine Hall’s four turrets this Saturday, November 9, at 3 p.m. during a special Homecoming blessing ceremony on the university’s campus.
The public is invited to attend the ceremony, which will be conducted by Abbot Lawrence Stasyszen, O.S.B., of St. Gregory’s Abbey.

Life is full of pivotal moments that not only shape your character, but also your destiny.
The first such moment in Alfonso Cueto’s life came in October 1960 when he and his family fled their homeland of Cuba to escape the turmoil created by the rise of Fidel Castro’s revolutionary regime.
“My family came over with $20 in our pockets,” Cueto remembers. “We left everything behind.”
