Sisters to host ‘Peace in the Mourning’
Join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, in person for the upcoming retreat “Peace in the Mourning,” set to begin at 6:30 p.m., on Friday, September 16, and conclude at 1 p.m., on Sunday, September 18.
The retreat will be facilitated by Sister Connie Kramer, SP, who is a grief specialist.
Come experience the consolation and peace that awaits you during this grief retreat, which will include time for personal and communal prayer, reflection and small group sharing as participants continue to mindfully mourn the loss of a loved one.
“The truth is that loss is a common life long experience for all persons,” Sister Connie said. “While grief is really the solution, not the problem, that invites us to work through all of the emotions that are the result of any significant losses in life. The outward expression of our grief is called mourning.
“And, for those willing to come meet companions on their grief journey in a beautiful, peaceful retreat setting, there awaits the gifts of comfort in knowing they do not walk this journey alone, consolation in sharing their grief journey with others and the peace that only the God of their own understanding can give to them.”
Cost is $250 per person with on-campus housing or $110 without housing. The cost includes all materials, five meals and refreshments.
“The sessions for this weekend retreat will take place in the Providence Hall Large Parlor and housing will be at the newly dedicated Woodhaven Retreat and Guest House on the property of the Sisters of Providence,” Sister Connie said.
The registration deadline is September 9 and space is limited.
