What inspires you?
For the Sisters of Providence a belief in, and dependence upon, Providence is central to our faith. Providence is simply another name for God’s loving care in our lives and in the world. Our foundress Saint Mother Theodore Guerin had a deep love for Christ and the Eucharist, which the sisters also carry forward today. Perhaps Providence has brought you here to be inspired and to thus inspire others?
Let us help support you in your journey of faith.
We’d love to offer prayer support for you or a loved one in need. Perhaps you’d like to meet with a sister who can offer wisdom and journey with you?
Environmental and social justice
Do you wish to join with other like-minded persons to support the marginalized?
We are called to respect and care for all of God’s Creation to preserve a vibrant earth community for future generations. We have honored the spirit that has brought us forth as interconnected and interdependent reflections of the God of Providence in sacred relationship with all life. Justice relates to all parts of the web of life – social, economic and environmental.
