The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods are a community of vowed Catholic women religious. Inspired by our foundress Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, we are passionate about our lives of prayer, education, service and advocacy.
Live joyfully! Single, Catholic women ages 18-42 are invited to explore a fulfilling life as a Sister of Providence. All women and men of faith are invited to join the family of Providence as Providence Associates.
The Sisters of Providence celebrated the 2015 Foundation Day on Oct. 22 – which coincided with the conclusion of their 175th year of history at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Below are some photographs from the event.
