The Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods have received word from Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and the Indiana Department of Transportation that a section of U.S. 150 adjacent to the motherhouse grounds will be known as Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Memorial Highway.
Gov. Daniels is expected to make the formal announcement at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Church of the Immaculate Conception at St. Mary-of-the-Woods.
Guerin will be canonized as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church on Oct. 15 at the Vatican. Pope Benedict XVI will preside. She came to the United States in 1840 and founded the Sisters of Providence.
There are 150 Psalms so U.S. 150 is a good choice to commemorate a saint.
