Sisters to host ‘Wheels for Wheels’ blessing

All motorcycle and Jeep enthusiasts are invited to join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, for the upcoming “Wheels for Wheels” blessing.

The event will begin at 10 a.m., on Saturday, May 4, with the motorcycle blessing and conclude following the Jeep blessing, which begins at noon, in front of Providence Health Care at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

Sister Jan Craven, SP, and Sister Paula Damiano, SP, co-directors of Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, along with Father Terry Johnson and Father Dan Hopcus will facilitate the blessing of vehicles and their riders.

“There are so many motor vehicles out there,” Sister Paula said. “And blessings for them happen in many places around the country and the Woods seemed like the perfect place to have a blessing.

“We’ve always considered our grounds holy. Many persons come here to pray and ask for blessings and the Woods is a beautiful destination for riders.”

Following the blessing, all are encouraged to stay to meet with the Sisters of Providence and to visit with other riders.

There will be no cost for participation but donations will be accepted for our Sisters who use their own “Wheels,” such as walkers, wheelchairs, amigos and more.
