Dear friends:

“What did you do today?” 

The next time you are asked this question, share that you helped provide a place of spiritual direction, healing and hope for more than 15,000 visitors, program participants, and pilgrims.

Candace Minster, White Violet Center garden manager, talks with a customer at the Terre Haute Downtown Farmers’ Market.

Tell them you helped develop sustainable means of farming by helping to expand and enhance the White Violet Center for Eco-Justice.

You helped care for our retired sisters and enabled the work of the many other ministries of the Sisters of Providence at the Woods, in our nation and around the world.

You helped promote vocations and the call to religious life.

You help every day when your gifts are used to continue the needed mission of the Sisters of Providence.

You are a friend to our mission and your gifts have impact on those we serve.  We hope you will consider making a gift to help us continue our work as we bring love, hope and justice to our homes, community and our world.
