St. Mary of the Woods, Terre Haute IN
Walk in the footsteps of St. Theodore Guerin
Saint Mother Guerin and her five companions first set foot on the soil at St. Mary of the Woods on October 22, 1840. Despite hardship, she knew how to turn to prayer in order to cope with the many challenges that confronted her and the community. She was a person of deep faith who led others to God. During this retreat, we will get to know the woman behind the saint and offer time for prayer and reflection.
Cost is $25 per person
