We’re always honored to bring your petition to God and pray for you.

Did you know:

  • many of our elderly infirm sisters dedicate their ministry to prayer?
  • we post “elevator lists” in sisters’ residences at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods noting special dates of our donors to remember in prayer, such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries and the first anniversary of the death of a spouse?
  • we reply with personal notes or emails to many of your prayer requests?

For the Providence Community, prayer is a much-loved ministry. We love serving you and each other through prayer.
