Deadline for New Albany Deanery high school mission trip is April 29

The deadline to register for the New Albany Deanery Catholic Youth Ministries high school mission trip to the impoverished Appalachian region in Wolfe County, Ky., on June 22-27 is April 29.

The Appalachia Summer Mission is a service event for incoming high school juniors, seniors and graduating seniors that provides hands-on experience in reaching out to community members in one of the Appalachian region’s poorest areas.

Participants work alongside others in the community who may be less fortunate, always with respect for their dignity and the lessons they have to teach.

Participants will have the chance to work on a variety of projects, including a Catholic thrift shop and food bank and Good Shepherd Mission church and community center.

Lodging will be provided in cabins, or at a youth hostel at the Red River Gorge Cabin inside Cliffview Resort.

The $325 registration fee covers transportation, food, lodging, a T-shirt and all materials required for the projects.

A $100 deposit is required by April 29 to reserve a spot on the mission trip. The total cost is due by May 31.

Benedict Inn schedules ‘Heart of Wisdom’ women’s retreat on May 6-7

Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center, 1402 Southern Ave., in Beech Grove, will offer “Heart of Wisdom” women’s retreat on May 6-7.

Sisterhood Drama Ministry and Benedict Inn have partnered together to provide this new, interactive retreat experience. “Heart of Wisdom” speaks to women of all ages and roles in life: mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, cousins and friends.

The retreat addresses such questions as, “What is wisdom?” “How do I get it?” and “How do I become wise instead of just accumulating a lot of knowledge?”

Sisterhood Drama Ministry dramatically and musically brings to life stories of wise women in the Bible, and how they can help us learn to be instruments of wisdom to other women.

The cost is $150, which includes an overnight stay and meals. “Bring a friend” and commuter discounts are available.

For more information or to register, log on to www.benedictinn.org, e-mail benedictinn@benedictinn.org or call 317-788-7581.
