Debbie Dillow ‘excited & humbled’ by new position
The Providence Associates Advisory Board is excited to welcome Debbie Dillow, PA, as the new assistant director of the relationship. Debbie has been an associate since 2008 and has served on the advisory board since last spring. Debbie hails from Lizton, Ind.
Debbie’s connection to the Congregation is unique. She wasn’t educated by the Sisters of Providence, but her children were taught by two SPs, although at the time she “did not know their affiliation.” It was another Providence Associate, Marilyn Webb, who suggested to Debbie that the Sisters of Providence might be able to help her on her spiritual journey.
“Since I did not know much about the Sisters of Providence I drove down to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods on a hot July Friday to see the campus and pray about becoming a Providence Associate. As soon as I crossed the main gate I felt an immense feeling of welcome — as if Saint Mother Theodore herself had welcomed me home. There was such a sense of peace that I knew I was in the right place,” said Debbie.
In her new position as assistant director, Debbie will be able to share that enthusiasm and sense of peace that she discovered at the Woods.
“Working with the associates and the Sisters of Providence has brought new faith-filled and spirit-led experiences into my life that are allowing me to grow in my spirituality. I hope to be able to share this with other associates as they journey in their relationship with the Sisters of Providence and other associates,” said Debbie.
“I am excited and humbled at this new opportunity to serve our Provident God. I look forward to working with the associates and sisters as we continue to develop this relationship and take it to a higher level,” she concluded.
