ALLENSPARK — The fate of the St. Malo Retreat Center used by Pope John Paul II in 1993 is up in the air.

The Chapel on the Rock in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains that was blessed by the pope still gets a steady stream of visitors, but the retreat center living quarters behind the church that was heavily damaged by a fire 21 months ago has not been restored.

The fire left behind only the living quarters and a solitary stone chimney from the former St. John's Lodge.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera (http://tinyurl.com/phnlwms), the Archdiocese of Denver that owns St. Malo has not decided what to do about its Catholic spiritual center.
