Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods

Partners in our mission

The Sisters of Providence consider as partners in our life and mission those individuals who share the unique spirit and gift of Providence. These partners say “yes” to God’s action in their lives and sense that they are somehow co-creators with God in bringing about a loving, merciful and just world. They do this through prayer, education, service, advocacy and financial support in whatever circumstances of life they find themselves.

Some partners have a more intentional relationship as Providence Associates and make a formal commitment which they renew for a year initially and then periodically, if and as they wish.

Giving of your time is another way to partner with us through Volunteer Services. At Saint-Mary- of-the- Woods and elsewhere volunteers serve i administrative departments and sponsored ministries and institutions. These volunteers serve as receptionists, tour guides, carpenters, visitors, tutors, companions and drivers and in countless other capacities where time, talents and skills are shared.

Still others partners share financial resources and/or gifts-in- kind. Ways to give

Because our work depends on God’s Providence we welcome as partners in our life and mission those who pray for us and the needs of our sponsored institutions and ministries, our staff members, Providence Associates, volunteers and our financial benefactors.
