Join novice sisters Anna Fan and Tracey Horan during the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods Come and See Weekend on April 8-10.

Do you want to live joyfully? Would you like to deepen your faith and live more intentionally? Are you looking for ways to serve God through works of love, mercy and justice, while breaking boundaries and creating hope?

All single Catholic women, ages 18-42, are invited to learn more about becoming a Sister of Providence during a “Come and See” weekend retreat, scheduled from 7 p.m., on Friday, April 8, to 2 p.m., on Sunday, April 10, at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, located 10 minutes northwest of downtown Terre Haute.

During the retreat, participants will have the chance to meet informally with new members of the Sisters of Providence, get to know the spirituality and mission of the sisters, find individualized support for their discernment journey, and meet and share experiences with other women also considering religious life.

“If you are discerning religious life, the beautiful grounds of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods provide a peaceful atmosphere that will allow you to enter into solitude to pray more deeply, listen more attentively and respond more fully to God’s movement within,” Vocation Director Sister Editha Ben said.

There is no charge for the event, and meals will be provided. Those interested in attending are asked to register.
