General Announcements 

Catholic Sisters Week is March 8-14

Fifty-two weeks a year, women religious stand with the poor and immigrants, teach children, fight injustice, care for the sick, share spirituality, empower the weak, encourage care for creation, promote peace, foster community and offer hope.

Catholic Sisters Week, coordinated by Communicators for Women Religious, was established as part of Women’s History Month—celebrated in March since 2015—to acknowledge the contributions of women religious. This year the dates are March 8-14.

Some ideas of ways to honor a religious sister during this week include: sending a thank you card or letter; inviting a religious sister to lunch; visit a retired sister; send a donation to a religious congregation; volunteer time in honor of a religious sister.

More ideas, a toolkit and resources can be found at catholicsistersweek.org.

Women religious orders with a convent or monastery in the archdiocese include:

  • The Congregation of the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis in Oldenburg.
  • The Discalced Carmelite Nuns in Oldenburg.
  • The Discalced Carmelite Nuns of St. Joseph Monastery in Terre Haute.
  • The Sisters of St. Benedict of Our Lady of Grace Monastery in Beech Grove.
  • The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods in St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

For a complete list and contact information of women religious orders and sisters serving or living in the archdiocese, go to bit.ly/WomenReligious.

 

Retrouvaille weekend for marriages in crisis is set for March 13-15

A Retrouvaille weekend for those whose marriage is in crisis is set for March 13-15 in Tipton, Ind. (Lafayette Diocese), with follow-up sessions in Indianapolis.

Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi with a long i) means “rediscovery.” A Retrouvaille weekend is not a spiritual retreat, sensitivity group, seminar or social gathering. Rather, it is a chance to rediscover yourself, your spouse and a loving relationship in your marriage. Tens of thousands of couples headed for divorce have successfully saved their marriages by attending the weekend and follow-up sessions.

To learn more about the program or to register, go to www.retrouvaille.org or www.HelpOurMarriage.com, email RetrouIndy@gmail.com or call 317-489-6811 for confidential registration information.
