Welcome to the Alumnae/i Association of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods! Since Saint Mother Theodore Guerin accepted her first student at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods Academy in 1841, thousands of women and men have been taught by Sisters of Providence in elementary school, high school or college.

We want everyone to share in the rich tradition of the Sisters of Providence and our Providence spirituality. Whether it is through events planned all across the United States for alumnae/i, through newsletters or e-newsletters mailed around the world or through keeping in touch on Facebook alumnae/i groups, the Sisters of Providence will support the alumnae/i associations in their endeavors to keep classmates connected.

The Mission Advancement office will continue to serve the need of our alumnae/i assocations.

Address corrections and tracking

If you have corrections/additions about contact information (mailing address, email address or phone number) please email cdavis@spsmw.org or call 812-535-2804. These updates are very important because the OCA maintains database information for all alumnae/i of the former Sisters of Providence high schools. These names and addresses are pulled for your associations to help plan reunions.

Alumnae/i relations contact

Each alumnae/i association has a page, which you will find in the menu to the left. Most associations have a volunteer alumnae/i coordinator, whose contact information will be listed on your page. Most likely, these graduates will be able to answer your questions! For other alumnae/i relations questions, please contact Rosie Blankenship, alumnae/i relations and annual giving manager, at rblanken@spsmw.org or at 812-535-2817.

Sister Sue Paweski, who was the long-time alumnae relations manager with the Sisters of Providence, happy to share that she has return to her passion: teaching!  She is the fine arts teacher at St. Genevieve School in Chicago.
