On October 6th we celebrated the anniversary of the canonization of St. Josemaria.  Read here the homily of St. John Paul II on that occasion. 

The website offers this short video of St. Josemaria explaining the spirit of Opus Dei: sanctity in the middle of the world.

Some items of interest:

1.  The website "Chastity Project" offers helpful videos for young people on this key topic. 

2. Due to the shortened retreat season at Longlea, and their current space restrictions, we will offer several 2-day (Tues/Wed) commuter retreats at Tenley Study Center in October and November, to accommodate those unable to make a retreat at Longlea and have the fliexibilty to attend mid-week. . Send an email to if interested. 

We will offer these dates:
