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) 1½ 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.
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)
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.
Cost for the SGU Food Package is $60 for people six and older,
free for children five and under.

sites, see the enclosed Visitor's Guide. (or see:
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.
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.
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.
