Edmundite 175th Anniversary

To celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Society of Saint Edmund's we invited members of the community to share their memories of Saint Michael's founding order.

Bob Benashski ‘61

When I was freshmen in 1957, we ate in the barracks cafeteria. We were all male, too bad, at the time the guys got very anxious around February. A food fight thus occurred in the cafeteria, it as interrupted by Father Coombs, the dean. He caught one student who was a bit shaken and Father said to stop throwing food and he said yes sir and the father replied I am a priest and address me as such, with that the overwhelmed student replied -“yes priest”. Did we laugh, hardly.
