"Professing my first vows was one of the happiest days in my life. Because I had fought it for so long, it was great that I was making a public commitment with the Sisters of Providence and to God. And it was great because my whole family and so many of my friends were with me that day."

All are welcome! The day features outside games, crafts, an eco-obstacle course, hay rides, alpaca shuttle tours, prizes and even Booth Bingo where folks receive a stuffed animal or game for visiting a certain number of the booths during the day. Best of all, activities and food are free, including hot dogs and buns, cookies and donated Pepsi products (while supplies last). The event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Families come from Terre Haute and West Terre Haute, Paris, Brazil, Bloomington, Marshall and other surrounding areas. It’s an energizing day for sister and staff volunteers who love seeing the Woods filled with laughing children and parents, and even an occasional family pet.

Do you know about our foundress, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin? We think she's pretty neat.  Born Oct. 2, 1798, in the village of Etables-sur-Mer in Brittany, France, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin led an extraordinary life before her death May 14, 1856, at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. After a process spanning nearly a century, Mother Theodore was canonized a #saint in the #Catholic Church on Oct. 15, 2006, and designated in the Vatican’s official record as Saint Theodora. Learn more about her here: http://spsmw.org/saint-mother-theodore/about-saint-mother-theodore-guerin/

 “We just wanted to focus on helping people to find a sense of belonging, to help them know God’s love that is here for all of us,” says Sister Susanne Gallagher of her work with SPRED - Special Religious Development for people with developmental or learning disabilities. (Here Sister Susanne (at right) helps her sister Rita climb the 40 steps to get to Rita’s SPRED faith community meeting.)  Read the story at http://bit.ly/10PZpPm.
