ST. MARY-OF-THE-WOODS, Ind. (AP) - In a story Sept. 30 about the transfer of the remains of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin to a shrine dedicated to her, The Associated Press erroneously reported the date that the shrine will open. It opens Oct. 25, not this Saturday.

A corrected version of the story is below:

W. Indiana nuns to move saint’s remains to shrine

Western Indiana order of nuns moving founder Guerin’s remains to new shrine

ST. MARY-OF-THE-WOODS, Ind. (AP) - A western Indiana order of nuns is moving the remains of its founder on Friday.

Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods will transfer the remains of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin (GEHR’-uhn) from their current location in the Church of the Immaculate Conception to the chapel of a new shrine dedicated to her. The transfer will occur following a liturgy at 11 a.m. Friday, which is also Guerin’s feast day.

The order says the transfer is being made ahead of the opening of the shrine on Oct. 25.

Guerin was the eighth saint declared in the U.S. and the only saint from Indiana. Pope Benedict XVI named Guerin a saint in 2006.

The order based outside Terre Haute was founded by Guerin in 1840.
