Where is God calling you? Are you a single, Catholic woman between the ages of 18 and 42? If so, we invite you to come away to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for a Come and See weekend retreat. Explore what it is like to live out a vocation as a Catholic religious sister.

Is God calling you to be a Catholic sister?

Get to know the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, and see if life as a Catholic religious sister might be for you. Spend time in prayer and with the sisters, listen to God and discern your future vocation. Explore the daily life and mission of Catholic women religious in our world today.

Did you know young women are still becoming sisters today? Meet our newest Sisters of Providence and ask them any questions you have about their journeys to becoming Catholic sisters today. Meet other women like yourself who are considering if a life dedicated to love for God and love for people in need is for them.

On this weekend retreat you will learn about and experience different forms of prayer. Hear how the Sisters of Providence prayer style has evolved over time. Spend time in community prayer with the sisters. And spend some time alone in prayer listening to where God is calling you.

“Pray, pray very much so the good God will show you what [God] wishes you to do.”
— Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
