The free retreat is for single Catholic women ages 18-42. It will run from 7-9 p.m., (EDT) on Friday, April 16, and 2-7 p.m., (EDT) on Saturday, April 17.

The Sisters of Providence are a community of Catholic women religious who, along with others, create a more just and hope-filled world through prayer, education, service and advocacy.

Join others and Sisters of Providence Vocations Director Sister Joni Luna as you deepen your understanding of God’s call within you. Through a virtual setting, learn what the Sisters of Providence have to offer, including:

  • A long history of standing up for justice, and
  • Ministries that respond to current needs, including at the United States/Mexico border, teaching, service in the medical field, environmental justice and more.
