    2. Mark Stephens says

      I think it is very important for people to realize how this community of Ave Maria is strongly associated with the Catholic Church and with a very traditional and conservative form of Catholicism. I am sure anyone interested in this community would check on the availability of places of worship outside the Roman Catholic tradition if this is important to them.
