Rebel With A Cause: Mother Theodore Guerin

Passage: Ephesians 1:18-19
Service Type:

Throughout time we find independent thinkers, nonconformist who buck the system and march to the beat of their own drummer. From the early reformer, Martin Luther to Martin Luther King these individuals have left a lasting impression that changed the fabric of history. This Sunday we celebrate the life and legacy of Theodore Guerin.

In 1840, Mother Theodore Guerin and five other Sisters of Providence journeyed from their convent in Ruille-sur-Loir, France, to the wilderness of Indiana, to establish an academy for women now known as Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in West Terre Haute. In the words of Mother Guerin, "profit by the experience of the past for the future." Join us Sunday as we look backward to the past in order to move forward today.
