Today the Tampa Tribune newspaper had a wonderful article by Michelle Bearden about the renovations to the St. Leo Abbey Church of the Holy Cross located in St. Leo, Florida, north of Tampa.
The article, “Abbey Church ‘alive again,’” tells about the renovations to the 61-year-old church, but also has good information about the spiritual retreats that anyone may enjoy any time of year.
This year is also the abbey’s 120th anniversary. A Celebratory Mass on Saturday, June 13, 2009, at 10:30 am begins the events to honor the abbey’s history.
St. Leo Abbey is a Catholic Benedictine Abbey following the ancient Rule of St. Benedict.
