Sisters to host ‘The Scriptures of Lent/Spring’

Join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, for the upcoming virtual retreat “The Scriptures of Lent/Spring.”

Each virtual session will take place from 6:15-7:45 p.m., on Thursdays during Lent, including Feb. 18 and 25; as well as March 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Unpack the richness and beauty of the Scripture passages used during the Lenten season as they come alive in new ways. Each session will be facilitated by a preacher, teacher or Scripture scholar. Scripture passages will be provided or participants may use their own Bible.

Presenters include Sisters of Providence Sister Marsha Speth, Sister Jan Craven, Sister Janice Smith and Sister Paula Damiano.

“We will give background to each of the readings, based on research,” Sister Paula said. “At the same time, we will all help make the readings applicable to life as we know it today.”

Cost is $5 per session or $25 for all six sessions. The registration deadline is Feb. 15 or three days before each session.

Register online here or by calling 812-535-2952 or emailing jfrost@spsmw.org.
