Providence Associates Saint Mother Theodore Guerin retreat 2014
“It has been more than I expected. I am just blown away,” said Tara Lane of her first Providence Associate retreat at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Since October, Tara has been studying elements of the spirituality of the Sisters of Providence as a candidate-associate. She joined 47 other Providence Associates, candidate-associates and Sisters of Providence in attending the Saint Mother Theodore Guerin spring retreat from March 7-9, 2014.
Participants learned about Mother Theodore’s life and virtues and spent time in prayer. “Just to be around the atmosphere and the wholeness of the Woods is really great. And this involved a depth of spirituality I didn’t expect. It has been really awesome,” Tara said. “I come here and I feel so much peace. The retreat helped me to realize the sacrifice that this place is built on.” She said she found it very humbling.
Here we share some photos from the weekend retreat. The Providence Associate relationship is open to women and men 18 years of age or older who want walk more closely with the Sisters of Providence and share in their mission.
