The Sisters of Providence New Membership Team has developed a number of resources to assist women who are considering religious life. These include:

Join us in praying for vocations (for you if you are discerning religious life, or for a friend or family member who may be thinking about it).

Provident God,

Your loving designs have shaped our universe.

Your loving care continues to sustain all life.

Your plans call each of us to participation in the ongoing work of creation.

Help us to be your love and to release your transforming energy in our world.

Touch the hearts of those searching for a way to respond in love to your call.

Gather those seeking other companions with whom they can make a difference in our world.

Plant in the hearts of faith-filled women the seeds of the possibility of a life as a Sister of Providence.

Help us to create together a new generation of people willing to be your loving Providence in our world.

We ask these blessings with confidence in that Providence that so far has never failed us.

Amen.                                                                                                                by Sister Nancy Nolan
