HOPE winter 2023 — Creating a new day
As seen in HOPE:
A favorite quote of Sister Paula’s is from the Persian poet Hafiz: “True art makes the divine silence in the soul break into applause.”
“I knew I would need support from my sisters … so I extended an invitation to join me here in Nogales.” Sisters Marilú Covani, SP, and Nancy Bartasavich, SP, accepted that invitation.
Sister Jody O’Neil, SP, finds spirituality in creating works of art. “Art is a connection of my spirit and the spirit beyond me.”
We hope this stewardship will bring many benefits to the community and the planet. At the very least, it will make us each more aware of how individual choices affect the vitality of the planet and help us to acquire some funds to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Here are some ideas Providence Community members suggested that we could do to combat climate change. Maybe you could join us!
“I feel drawn to Mother Theodore’s zeal, courage, caring and loving, especially her complete trust in the Providence of God. I want to grow deeper in my love for God and in the zeal to serve others as a Sister of Providence following the legacy of Mother Theodore.”
“We … know Sister Jenny as a faithful daughter of Providence, someone whose own life experiences, like your own, have called her to let go in order to let something new come. Thank you, Victory Noll Sisters, for inviting us into your lives.”
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.
You bring HOPE
to people in need when you support the mission and ministry of the Sisters of Providence.
