I feel truly honored and blessed to be able to attend a church as wonderful as St. Gregory’s while attending OSU. Although I’m sure my parents would rather have me finish college, I wish I could spend more years at OSU so that I can keep attending services at St. Gregory’s. Thank you very much for all you have done and continue to do for us college students. You have nurtured the souls of many students through the years, and I am happy to know that when I am gone, that mission will go on, providing a spiritual home for future college students. You truly do make a difference."
