Join the Sisters of Providence for ‘Beads of Prayer’ (Canceled)
This event has been canceled
The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, invite persons of all faith traditions for the upcoming workshop “Beads of Prayer,” scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m., on Thursday, Feb. 22, in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center.
Using beads for prayer is a practice used worldwide for centuries and is finding a resurgence during our time. Take the opportunity to learn about the history and use of prayer beads and during quiet reflection, make your own prayer beads.
“The usage of prayer beads predates Christianity,” Sister Paula said. “Some of the earliest evidence of using prayer beads is in Hinduism. Prayer beads allow the pray-er a way to count the number of prescribed prayers without having to count. They also serve as a tangible tool to help people focus.”
Cost is $20, which includes all materials and snacks.
