General Announcements 

Project Rachel Retreat for grief over abortion to be held Aug. 26-27 near Bloomington

Whether a woman or man, participant or family member or friend, the grief over an abortion is often so deep that it seems to be silent. Those affected may bear this burden for years thinking that there is no hope of forgiveness or peace.

A Project Rachel Retreat will be held on Aug. 26-27 in the greater Bloomington area. This retreat is a safe place to renew and rebuild hearts broken from abortion. It offers a confidential environment where individuals can begin the process of healing.

For more information or to register, call 317-452-0054, or e-mail projectrachel@archindy.org. Registration deadline is Aug. 19.

Those wishing to pray especially for individuals attending the weekend retreat or to write them a letter of encouragement may submit their prayer, spiritual bouquet or letter to projectrachel@archindy.org by Aug. 24. For more information, e-mail projectrachel@archindy.org or call 317-452-0054.

The cost is $995 per semester, plus the cost of books and supplies.

Each SDI participant is expected to be actively engaged in personal spiritual direction for a year prior to beginning the internship. The application procedures include:

  • completing a five page, double spaced spiritual autobiography;
  • submitting three recommendations;
  • paying an application fee of $25;
  • interviewing with the director of spirituality.

Divine Mercy Adoration Chapel project seeks to raise funds for art in chapel

In honor of the late anchoress Sister Mary Ann Schumann, the chapel guardian of the Divine Mercy Perpetual Adoration Chapel on the west side of Indianapolis is seeking to raise $15,000 for art in the chapel. Sister Mary Ann helped found the chapel in 1989 and served as its guardian until her death on Jan. 29.

The chapel was the first perpetual adoration chapel in Indianapolis. The effort was aided by Msgr. Joseph Schaedel. It stands between St. Michael the Archangel Church and Cardinal Ritter Jr./Sr. High School on West 30th Street.

The art, painted by artist Michael McCarthy, depicts life-size renderings of the three archangels: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. The goal of the effort is $15,000.

Checks can be made out to CRHS with “Angel Project” written in the memo. Mail checks to Dyan Huey, 4933 Katelyn Drive, Indianapolis, IN 46228.

To make a cash donation, place cash in an envelope marked “Dyan Huey/Angel Project.” Envelopes can be left with Peggy Huston at the Ritter president’s office; next to the chapel doors at the Divine Mercy Perpetual Adoration Chapel; or given directly to Dyan Huey or chapel guardian Lisette Shattuck. Do not mail cash.

For more information, contact Huey at dyanhuey@gmail.com, or call her at 317-627-2658, or Shattuck at lshattu2@aol.com, or call her at 317-283-5422.
