Breaking News: Fire at Camp St. Malo

Camp St. Malo is a Catholic Retreat center in the Colorodo Rockies. Pope John Paul visited it in 1993.

But it brings back fond memories for this deacon’s wife. When I was a junior and senior at Bishop Machebeuf High School in Denver, I attended several class retreats there.

So this news of a fire in the retreat center saddens me.  H/T New Advent

The facilities were fairly primitive way back then. There were no rooms–just a boys dorm and a girls dorm.

Several years ago the retreat center was remodeled and expanded. But the entrance sign looks the same, and the Chapel on the Rock is still there. It was my favorite go to place.
