Donors, you bless us beyond words!

“We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers.” 1 Thessalonians 1:2. This verse has never been truer. The Sisters of Providence can’t do our work without you! You are the reason we can share Good News.

Giving Day

As you know, October is an exceptional month of celebration for the Sisters of Providence. Mother Theodore’s birthday (10/2), Feast Day (10/3) and Foundation Day (10/22) for the Congregation mark important milestones.

We launched our first Saint Mother Theodore’s Legacy Lives: Giving Day (Oct. 18)/Month with a goal to honor Mother Theodore’s valiant ministry. This provided quality, affordable education and care of the sick and poor in the areas where the sisters served, while all odds were against it. We also wanted to highlight the importance of the Sisters of Providence today, carrying on that legacy of love, mercy and justice among God’s people. Lastly, we fervently wished to encourage new friends to learn about and give to the Congregation.

Your generosity abounded! We raised a total of $30,772 from 110 gifts. We had first-time gifts from 13 people, including seven brand-new friends to the Congregation.

Supporters during this campaign received a stand-up tabletop rendering of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, measuring 7 1/8-inches high, as a visual reminder of their special relationship to her, and the Sisters of Providence.

We are so grateful to all. Your support ensures a bright future for our sisters and those we serve!

You gave to the Sisters of Providence even though economic times are tough. You gave to the Providence Community even though many of you were experiencing personal losses and hardships. Please know we use each gift to further the Gospel message of hope and healing. We are so grateful to each and every donor who gave during October, and throughout all of 2022.
