I hoope Jackie gets this as this writing is all new to me and don't know if I am doing it right. well I'll try anyway..My mother went to St Benedicts Indian mission school as a child as did may of my relatives. I took my daughter out to see the area where the school used to stand and where the girls lived in a big dormatory. This was all tore down quite some years ago. Now in the old rectory a rehab is operating. Some of the old farms buildings are still there but look quite unsafe to enter. There is not a church there anymore and I cant tell you when that went down. There is a Saint Benedicts in the town of White Earth that is still used today and doing quite well. This church is about 3 miles from where the dormatory was. Carol
