General Announcements

Day of reflection offered for African-American Catholic women on Nov. 23

The Black Catholic Ministry of the archdiocesan Office of Multicultural Ministry is offering a day of reflection for African-American Catholic women at Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House, 5353 E 56th St. in Indianapolis, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Nov. 23.

“Last Advent, 70 African-American Catholic women attended our day of reflection,” said Franciscan Sister Jannette Pruitt, director of Black Catholic Ministry for the archdiocese. “We were filled with the Holy Spirit and energized enough to take us to the next year—and here we are again!”

The theme for this year’s conference is “Where Two or Three Are Gathered in My Name,” taken from the Gospel of Matthew 18:20.

The keynote speaker is Adrienne Curry of Christ the King Parish in Lexington, Ky. Curry, who holds a master’s degree in divinity, currently serves as pastoral associate for parish social ministry at Christ the King.

Prior to coming to Lexington in 2012, Curry worked for 15 years in various positions for Catholic Relief Services and the Office for Peace and Justice in the Archdiocese of Chicago.

The check-in time for the event is 10 a.m., with a start time of 10:30 a.m. The day will close with Mass at 4 p.m.

The cost is $16, which includes lunch. T-shirts are also available for $10-12, depending on size.

To register, contact Sister Jannette at 317-236-1474. Registration ends on Nov. 13.


Sisters of Providence to host Taizé service on Nov. 12 at St. Mary-of-the-Woods

All people of faith in the Wabash Valley are invited to gather with the Sisters of Providence for a Taizé prayer service from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 12 in the Church of the Immaculate Conception at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

The monthly Taizé services are a part of the Year of the River programming, which invites area residents to celebrate the local Wabash River. The theme for the November prayer gathering is “Wabashiki and the Native Peoples.”

“The Wabash River gets its name from the Native American people. We thought that in this Year of the River while we are praying for all aspects of the river, we certainly needed to pray for the Native Americans, for whom the river was a life source,” said Providence Sister Paula Damiano, one of the event’s organizers.

“The theme will be a prayer of thanksgiving for the care the Native American people gave to the river and to preserving it for many generations to come.”

Incorporating song, silence and reflective readings, the candlelit services bring together people of varying faith backgrounds in united personal prayer.

For more information, contact Sister Paula at 812-535-2926 or e-mail her at

Earle’s 2013-14 schedule includes two international tours, in addition to numerous local, state and regional performances. She is also director of the Owensboro Symphony Chorus and music director at Settle Memorial United Methodist Church.

Abel has been concertmaster of the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra since 1986. He is associate principal second violin of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra.
