Church of the Immaculate Conception
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, IN
Starting tomorrow I will be on retreat at Saint Mary-or-the-Woods. The Sisters of Providence have been in Indiana since 1842 when Saint Mother Theodore Guerin set foot in these lovely woods. The Woods is a place of serenity, peace and quiet. Yes, and it is the campus of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. It is an amazing place and I am so excited to be able to spend time there with the sisters and other associates.
I will make my retreat in HOPE. I'm not sure what I am hoping for but then that is the reason I am making a retreat. I pray the Holy Spirit will guide me and that I have the willingness to listen.
"But our hope is in the providence of God
which has protected us until the present,
and which will provide, somehow,
for our future needs. . ."
Saint Mother Theodore
