The Sisters of Providence will host a "Come and See" weekend April 8 through 10 at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Catholic women ages 18 to 42 who are considering a call to apostolic religious life are invited to attend.

Participants will be able to engage in group prayer, group discussion, personal reflection, a service activity and will connect with a sister companion. Sister Nancy Nolan will speak on "Apostolic Religious Life: A Response to the Longing."

There is no cost to participate. Housing and meals are provided. Registration is due by April 4. Online registration can be made at www. SistersofProvidence.org. Additional information can be obtained from Sister Jenny Howard, vocation director, at jhoward@spsmw.org or at 812-535-2897.
