      Congratulations, Sister Emily! May God grant you many blessings as you begin your life in His service.

      I am curious to know the meaning of the colorful flags. I had never seen them before. Thanks

    The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary of the Woods truly IGNITE the liturgical celebration honoring the commitment of Sister Emily!
    Each photo gave testimony to their profound intention to stand united as a community using such beautiful, meaningful imagery—-SIMPLY EYE OPENING & HEART RESOUNDING!
    Earlier this year, I just clicked on your website because of an article written by one of the sisters and I have been so very impressed and excited by the emails I have been receiving….THANKS!

    Abundant blessings on Sister Emily’s commitment and may her joy continue to be both inspiring and contagious–truly, an “Alleluia from head to toe!”
