Welcome to The Abbey School
Class of 1969 Website


In the fall of 1965 a disparate group of fine young men were snatched up from their peaceful world, packed up and shipped off to begin an adventure that would, in one way or another, shape their lives for years to come. They were sent to the Holy Cross Abbey School in Cañon City, Colorado. The time we spent there was much more than just a formal education. It was a time to grow socially, mentally, and emotionally.

Here we will try to keep alive some of those adventures. We have been going our separate ways for the last 40 years, but the common bond of those precious years at the Abbey School is still with us. To keep that bond tight here we hope share news, stories, gossip, tragedies, photos and other memorabilia from our days together from1965 – 1969 and our days apart since then. We invite you to share your information with your classmates. Send us stories and photographs and we will find a place to put them. We would like to make these pages as somewhat of a virtual class reunion.

We also welcome news and photos from other Abbey classes here. If we get enough interest we will create pages for other years and make this a central point of contact for Abbey Alumni.

Hope to see you all at the virtual reunion,
Tony “Moby” Mattson
