Springtime Scripture with the Sisters of Providence

Join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, and plan to unpack the richness and beauty of scripture passages used during Lent at the upcoming “Springtime Scriptures” series.

The series will begin on Feb. 27, and continue on March 5, 12, 19 and 26, as well as April 2. Times are 6-7:30 p.m., and the workshops will take place in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center.

Come for one session or to all as your Lenten practice as you witness the scriptures come alive in new ways.

Sister Jan Craven will present the series with help from others.

“Each session will focus on the upcoming Sunday readings,” Sister Jan said. “There will be four readings of scripture that I will present at each session. I will give some background about the author of the scripture text as well as some background of the time period and what audience the author was addressing. There will be plenty of time to share the insights of the people who attend as well.

“Going deeper into the readings during Lent is a great way for people to deepen their spirituality and prepare better for Easter.”

There is no cost to attend, but freewill donations will be accepted.
