Last Minute Appeal for Funds for Mendicant Group

Friends,

I received a telephone request today from Domus Rosa Mystica (that's a Catholic religious group in the Detroit area headed by Alejandro Torres) notifying me that they are in need of funds to take a group of about 7 people to the Vita Consecrata ("Consecrated Life") Institute at Christendom College in Virginia. It's a last minute appeal because the institute (apparently a series of courses on the religious life) begins on July 13th. Domus Rosa Mystica is a developing religious community in formation in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Further background information is available at their excellent website:

http://www.domusrosamystica.org/english/Domus%20Rosa%20Mystica.htm .

If you feel so led and are able to contribute any amount, however small, the mailing address is:

Domus Rosa Mystica
2684 W. Newburg Rd.
Carleton, MI 48117.

Checks can be made out to "Domus Rosa Mystica." They are a mendicant group under the authority of the Archdiocese of Detroit and depending on God's providence for any funds.

(Carelton is about 40 minutes southeast of the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area, near the town of Flat Rock, Michigan.)

If you are in the area and ever wish to get in touch with them or visit them, contact them directly through the information on their website at this link. I understand that they are open to praying with people who so request if notified beforehand for an appointment. They are also open to invitations to speak to Catholic groups in the area. Their charism is especially focused on the deliverance of hardened sinners. They are also called to serve the spiritual needs of clergy and of people in religious life. They are also open to helping people in other situations.
