How we serve
Sisters in ministry
If you think about it, being Sisters of Providence isn’t just a ministry, it’s who we are. Individual sisters serve as teachers, parish life coordinators, nurses and advocates for people who are poor, elderly or ill. Sisters also serve in formal, Congregation-sponsored ministries like providing spiritual programs, events and retreats at the Woods or encouraging women to become new Catholic sisters with the SPs.
When we aren’t at “work,” you may find us in personal or group prayer or running a 5K marathon. You’ll find sisters within the communities in which we serve - at the grocery store, at a local festival or as a patient in the hospital.
Sharing the Gospel is a part of everything we do.
You'll find sisters involved in education, social services, healthcare, and spiritual, art and music ministries.
Living a life of love, mercy and justice in service of others is a way of life.
