“It’s official! Mother Theodore Guerin was declared a saint in St. Peter’s Square in Rome Sunday, Oct. 15. Sisters and pilgrims celebrated in Rome during the canonization ceremony. Seven hours later at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind., sisters and visitors to the Church of the Immaculate Conception celebrated during the Eucharistic Liturgy. Visit our blog to get up-to-the-minute thoughts and reporting and stay tuned as we share photos, stories and more from both locales.”
