Connected by the RED THREAD

It’s almost time for Homecoming, always a meaningful and festive time of year on our campus when we can reflect on the Red Thread that connects the entire Benedictine Community. Celebrating our alumni each year helps us to not only remember and honor their great achievements, but it also enables current students to learn firsthand from past students how the Benedictine education and experience can prepare them for success in the upcoming chapters of their lives – The Thread that intertwines us all together.

Plans are now being made for this annual fun event! Please keep your eye on this site for all of the latest details.
