[Worcester] Massachusetts diocese could face legal action for refusal to sell retreat center
CWN – August 01, 2012
A Massachusetts man [and his male mate] may bring legal action against the Diocese of Worcester, after the diocese rejected his bid to purchase a retreat center.
Alain Beret reports that he had settled with the diocese on a purchase price for the Oakhurst Retreat and Conference Center, which he planned to use as a venue for weddings and other social events. Negotiations apparently broke down, however. An email from a diocesan official to a realtor, worrying about “the potentiality of gay marriages there,” later became public.
