Sisters to host Bikers, Blessing and BBQ

All motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, for the upcoming “Bikers, Blessing and BBQ.”

The event, scheduled to help kick off Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in the Wabash Valley, will take place from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., on Saturday, May 14, in the parking lot of Providence Spirituality & Conference Center.

Sisters Jan Craven, SP, and Sister Paula Damiano, SP, co-directors of Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, along with Father Terry Johnson, will facilitate the blessing of bikes and their riders, in addition to leading prayers for safety. Each rider will receive a medal to carry during their travels.

“There are so many motorcyclists out there,” Sister Paula said. “Blessings for motorcyclists happen in many places around the country and the Woods seemed like the perfect place to have a blessing.

“We’ve always considered our grounds holy. Many persons come here to pray and ask for blessings and the Woods is a beautiful destination for riders.”

Following the blessing, all are encouraged to stay for a barbecue lunch catered by Bon Appetit from their food truck, to meet with the Sisters of Providence and to visit with other riders.

There is no cost for the blessing; there will be a cost for food purchases. The registration deadline is May 7.

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