2018 SBA Spring Luncheon

A group of SBA Alum gathered at Erie Ambassador Conference Center for the annual Spring Luncheon in continued support of the Benedictine Sisters and their ministries 30 years after the closing of Saint Benedict Academy. It included a number of highlights. Reminiscing together created some fun moments for those gathered and lots of camaraderie. The announcement of the 20 winners of education scholarships of $250 each, to children, grandchildren nieces or nephews of Alum was received with excited enthusiasm. In addition to a number of vendors selling their specialty items there was another attraction for a small fee: the Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show in the main ballroom. “There is just something special about this group of women,” said Ann Comstock, SBA Alum Director. “I have never been to a gathering where a good time was not had!”

Sunday morning brought a number of SBA alum to Mount St. Benedict Monastery where they joined the sisters for Eucharist and a social gathering afterward. Excitement ran high and one alum remarked, “This is the perfect ending to a perfect weekend. I am so glad I was able to be a part of it!”
