Sisters of Providence to host ‘Mystics – A Journey of Discovery’
Plan on joining the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, in person or virtually for the second of the four-part series “Mystics – A Journey of Discovery.”
The second workshop will take place from 1:30-3:30 p.m., on Sunday, November 6, in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, and will focus on Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), a Carmelite nun and Spanish mystic, and Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591), a Spanish Carmelite friar and mystic.
Sister Paula Damiano, SP, will be one of the facilitators for this upcoming series, adding that those who attended the September workshop will enjoy learning more about these two mystics.
Other workshops are planned for January 29, 2023, and March 19, 2023. The final two sessions will examine Herman Hesse (1877-1962), a German-Swiss poet, novelist and painter (January 29); and Saint Bridget of Sweden (1303-1373), a wife, mother, nun and mystic (March 19).
Sister Paula said it is important to learn more about mystics from a religious point of view.
“There are many different ways in which a mystic is identified,” Sister Paula said. “Simply put, a mystic is someone who has an experience of union with The Divine.”
Cost to attend is $25 per session, which includes all materials and refreshments.
