“What fun it has been to open my email and find some messages and pictures from you all. I had hoped to make it to Colorado Springs for our reunion, but I fractured my foot when I was there in June, and it’s just to hard to travel right now. I think of my time at Benet Hill with a smile. We were very fortunate to attend such a wonderful school. The sisters gave us a great foundation to build upon.“ -Cherie Wagner Gipson, Class of‘78
“I was planning on attending the reunion celebrations, but my husband, Steve, passed away on Tuesday. It has been such a shock to our family. I send love to my classmates of ‘68 and all alumnae that are celebrating, and of course to all the sisters who helped shape my ethos and life. My years at Benet Hill are a wonderful treasured memory.” -Kathy Antony, Class of ‘68
“My years at Benet Hill were some of the best! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make the reunion. I’ll never forget the great times I had with you all, and wish you all the best.” -Ann (Tuso) Baxley
“I really wanted to see everyone again because I have fond memories of our days at Benet Hill. We were lucky to have gone to such a wonderful school.” -Shelley Roberts Sullivan, Class of ‘78

The community of Benet Hill Monastery cherishes its community songs!
Through word and music, composed by Sisters Mary Alice Guilfoil and Mary Susan Kros, the spirit of the community is captured. One song particularly reminds us of the thousands of Alumni, men and women whose lives were lovingly molded, minds creatively challenged and spirits lifted to an awareness of a loving Creator! When we sing the words: “From the far San Luis Valley, to the city one mile high, all through Colorado, we’ll live and love and die!” We are reminded of our students in Walsenburg, the San Luis Valley, Pueblo , Colorado Springs, Denver and throughout other counties in Colorado whose lives enriched our lives!
We continue to try to capture some of these experiences, particularly connecting with Benet Hill Academy, the students and events that will never be forgotten; our Spirituality Center where students forged a new path of faith formation that continues to impact lives and the numerous elementary schools and two secondary schools whose graduates recall and share their stories and wonderful experiences.
We want to keep in touch with our Alumni! Please fill out the Alumnae Information Form so that we may deliver news and updates to our previous students in a timely manner.
