Regarding St. Mary's of the Pines. According to the web site of the Durward's Glen Retreat
"In 2006, the parish was closed and the Order of St. Camillus put the property up for sale. But like the Durwards before them, they did not want to see the land held by strangers to whom traditions were not. The local community, particularly members of the St. Camillus Parish who form Our Lady of the Rosary Society, sought out and helped Magdalen College to receive the property in 2007."
