St. Mother Theodore Guerin receives honor as Indiana Pioneer

St. Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods, has been honored as a Hoosier Pioneer by The Society of Indiana Pioneers. The designation was made Nov. 3 at the society’s annual meeting.

Sisters Barbara Doherty and Marie Kevin Tighe and Kathy Fleming attended the meeting and each spoke about different aspects of St. Mother Theodore’s life.

St. Mother Theodore arrived at St. Mary-of-the-Woods Oct. 22, 1840. She and five companions came to the United States to establish the Sisters of Providence and to open schools for Indiana children.

She was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct. 15, 2006, during a ceremony and celebration at The Vatican.

The Society of Indiana Pioneers was established in 1916 in conjunction with the state’s centennial celebration with the intention to honor the memory and work of the early settlers who opened the state to civilization and continued its development.
