Sisters to host ‘Bird Watching at the Woods’

Plan on spending the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 18, at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, as you join the Sisters of Providence for the “Bird Watching at the Woods” retreat.

The retreat will begin at 10 a.m., and conclude at noon. Those attending are asked to meet in the large conference room in Providence Hall.

All bird lovers are invited to the Woods to experience a different way of identifying and looking at birds, all while having fun and sharing with others.

Join facilitator Sisters of Charity Sister Marty Dermody, SC, and others as you trek around the Woods while watching all of the birds in their natural habitat.

“Sister Marty is in our Midwestern Spiritual Direction group,” Sisters of Providence Sister Jan Craven said. “She always takes advantage of our different meeting sites and so, when she came here, she commented on sighting some rare and regional wildlife here, especially birds, which is a passionate hobby for her.

“We will begin with some brief introductions, then head outside. We may head near the trails and the lake. Sister Marty has been here before, so she is very familiar with our Woods.”

Masks will be required and participants should not forget to bring comfortable walking shoes. Binoculars will also be helpful to bring.

Cost is $20 per person. The registration deadline is Sept. 13.
