OPUS ANGELORUM 2007 RETREAT SCHEDULE
is on the web. I see they are coming back to Akron once again, this time for a Lenten Mission at St. Mary's. It's a shame this church isn't located in a safe neighborhood instead of an inner city parish. Nothing would persuade me to venture into St. Mary's Parish after dark without a cop in tow.
Looking for information on the parishes taking part in these retreats...
Several of the retreats are listed simply by city. There is little information available for searching on the web. Why isn't more information given as to the location of these retreats? Among those which do offer a location:
Sts. Cyril and Methodius, Sterling Heights, Michigan. This appears to be a Macedonian Orthodox Church. At least there is a church by that name listed on the Macedonian website.
Benedictine Monastery in Still River. I found a Benedictine Abbey in Still River, Massachusetts. There is a quote from Fr. Leonard Feeney on the index webpage. This appears to be the St. Benedict Center dressed up in its new clothes. Maybe there is another Benedictine facility in Still River. I didn't find one, and without a street address, it's impossible to tell.
Sacred Heart in W. Covina looks like a normal American Roman Catholic parish on the conservative side. It's located in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
