A Place of Educational and Social Outreach
Miracle Place opened in August of 2000 as a ministry of the Sisters of Providence on the near eastside of Indianapolis. Over time the tremendous efforts have made a dream come true for the neighborhood. Miracle Place is rooted in the 165-year old tradition of educational and social outreach of the Sisters of Providence.
Miracle Place offers educational opportunities and cultural experiences for all ages, a place of spiritual refreshment and community development.
Miracle Place is an atypical ministry. Rather than focusing on a single problem of the inner city, Miracle Place devotes itself to the neighborhood, with the ultimate goal of developing a strong sense of community and place.
Specific programs evolve as needs become apparent. The presence of Miracle Place in the neighborhood offers hospitality, care, and concern.
The Saturday Evening Post® July/August issue featured Sister Rita Ann Wade and Sister Barbara McClelland in an article entitled “The Hero Next Door.” Click on the link to read excerpts from that article. It is a touching tribute to what we all can do for others.
