Sisters to offer Personal Day of Prayer

Persons interested in taking a day away from the hustle and bustle of life are invited to join the Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods at 9 a.m. Saturday for Personal Day of Prayer.

Sister Paula Damiano, Providence Spirituality and Conference Center director of programs and retreats, said the day is intended for persons who need to get away from the stress and busyness of everyday life while enjoying a quiet day in the presence of God.

“This is a day for people to get away for a time of prayer, quiet reflection and possibly a walk around the grounds,” she said. “It’s essentially a day everyone longs for, but no one can really ever take.”

An opening prayer will begin the event, followed by suggestions for those participating. At 11:30 a.m., those attending are invited to join the Sisters of Providence for Mass in the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

Lunch will be available for those interested.

Events will conclude at 4 p.m.

The deadline to register is Sunday. Cost is $25.

For more information or to register, call 812-535-2952 or email
