Come and see what love, mercy and justice looks like lived out in the ministries of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana.
The Sisters of Providence invite all single, Catholic women ages 18-42 to attend their upcoming free Come and See fall weekend retreat, which begins at 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 3, and concludes at 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 5. Food and housing will be provided.
Sisters of Providence Vocations Director Sister Joni Luna, SP, said she hopes those who attend the retreat find the Congregation inviting.
“I want women to know that religious life with the Sisters of Providence is a spiritual pathway to living, serving and walking with those in need,” Sister Joni said. “We use our God-given gifts and talents in service to others.”
