I myself am convinced about you …that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge. (Romans 15:14)
On This Date..
O Sunday, November 8, 1959, Bishop Michael Hyle of Wilmington dedicated Saint Norbert Hall.
After blessing the cornerstone on the outside wall of the current Oratory (the library in 1959), there was a ceremony on the front steps of Saint Norbert Hall. Then, the guests proceeded into the new auditorium (our current library) for Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and a dedication address given by Father Michael McKeough, O.Praem., Archmere’s first headmaster from 1932 to 1936. Among the guests were Abbot Sylvester Killeen, O.Praem. of Saint Norbert Abbey in Wisconsin; Honorable J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of Delaware; and Honorable John. J. Williams, U.S. Senator for Delaware.
Today, Archmere’s varisty football team gathered in the Oratory for their weekly team Mass. They heard these words of Saint Paul, “I myself am convinced about you …that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge.” We are thankful for all the goodness and knowledge given and received in Saint Norbert Hall these 54 years.
