Mission in Asia
Did you know that the Sisters of Providence have had a presence in Asia since 1920? Six sisters responded to a call to the foreign mission, echoing Saint Mother Theodore Guerin’s response to go to a foreign land in 1840. Currently, we minister in two locations, including Miracle Home and Providence University. We also have several women in formation in the area.
A strong, ongoing relationship
In 2015 and 2016, we welcomed guests and alumnae from Providence University. Adding to the excitement was the presence of current Providence University students who spent a year at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College as exchange students.
