Sisters to host Praying with Nature
Plan to come out to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, on Saturday, Oct. 8, and join the Sisters of Providence for the upcoming workshop, “Praying with Nature.”
The event will take place from 9:30 a.m.-noon. Those planning on attending are asked to meet at the Havlik Center, located in Providence Hall.
Facilitator Sister Marty Dermody, SC, will lead those attending to many areas on campus where attendees can discover the beauty of nature and prayer as they get in touch with the loving God and observe the seasonal transformation up close.
Sister Jan Craven, SP, co-director of Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, said the workshop will help all attending grow closer to God and nature.
“Praying with the help of nature, especially here in these exquisite Woods, allows the participants to experience prayer through the senses,” Sister Jan said. “Such prayer frees us to know ourselves and the Holy One and nature more deeply.
“It will be a sensory reflective exercise to retrain our minds to take in all the beauty that surrounds us.”
It is recommended that those attending wear comfortable shoes and possibly bring a camera and/or binoculars.
Cost to attend is $30 per person, which includes refreshments. The registration deadline is Oct. 6.
