As the Lenten season approaches, St. Mary Church is excited to announce a very special opportunity for our parish and the Wooster community. Dan Burke, President of the Avila Foundation and well known author of numerous books, including Into the Deep, is coming to Wooster to host a live retreat on Spiritual Warfare and the Voice of God.

  • Distinguish between the forces of darkness and light
  • Find the keys to true spiritual freedom
