Convention Site

Saint Gregory's University is an outstanding facility for our convention. It is easy to locate and about 3 miles from interstate Exit # 185 of I-40 in Central Oklahoma (maps). Saint Gregory's University (SGU) has about 200 dormitory rooms, with overflow going to Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) 1 miles away. SGU also has a gymnasium with a pool, an exercise room, and more (pool open to convention-goers for two evenings, otherwise fee for gym use). There is plenty of convenient parking close to the rooms, all rooms are air-conditioned, and laundry facilities are available. A map of the campus will be given to you at check-in.

Housing

Dormitory rooms with two single-size beds will be available on the campuses of SGU and OBU. The cost for rooms at either facility are the same. Linen packages will be available that contain two flat sheets, a bath towel and a washcloth. Some dorms have one bathroom shared by two rooms, others have a large multi-stall, multi-shower men's bathroom and women's bathroom on each floor. You will need to bring your own pillows, pillowcases, and blankets. Those sleeping on the tile floor need their own bedding. You can bring your own phone and cord to get an extension on the SGU phone system (if you stay in an SGU dorm). To which campus will you be assigned? We cannot know until check-in time. Early registration and early arrival makes SGU more likely. Also, there will be no shuttle service between campuses, so those who arrive by air will be given SGU preference.  (Room Photos)

Food

SGU is offering a food package for your maximum convenience. There will be two cafeterias serving dinner Sunday; breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday and Tuesday; and breakfast and lunch Wednesday. The food service people at St. Gregory's are known for providing a nice selection of health conscious and kid friendly foods.  They've even worked to provide a traditional "cookout" picnic menu on Tuesday evening

Please note: If you register for the Food Package, it is for the ENTIRE convention, not for selected days. Higher-cost single meals may or may not be available.

Meal Fees

Cost for the SGU Food Package is $60 for people six and older, free for children five and under.

Daily Worship

Both Mass and Protestant services will be held daily during the Convention. Masses are currently scheduled at 7:30 AM and Noon. There is also a 5:00 PM. daily Mass at St Gregory's Abbey Church (on the East side of the University Campus). Complete information on the worship services will be available at Convention check-in.

Check-in Procedure

When you first arrive at the St. Gregory's, please follow the signs to the dorms in the Northwest corner of the campus. Please bring your confirmation notice and a ready checkbook. (Confirmation notice is optional, but helpful. You should have received confirmation 3-6 weeks after registration.) You will receive a Convention Packet at the check-in containing a program booklet, name tags, evaluation form, tape order form, and visitor information. Registration will be available Sunday (6/23) 12 Noon to 8PM, and Monday (6/24) 8AM to 11AM.

Dormitory Fees

First, determine how many rooms you will need. Each room can hold four people: two in beds and two on the floor. The first one or two people in a room are each charged $11 for each night and $10 for a single linen package for the entire stay. Extra linen packages are available for $10 each. See table below for typical dorm charges.
