Transformed and transferred: reflection for the transfer of vows of Sister My Huong Pham

Posted on February 28, 2018 at 11:59 am by

So, though we celebrate My Huong’s transfer of vows today, her transformation in Providence, I urge all of us to see this occasion as an invitation from God to change ourselves … to allow ourselves, through God’s strength and grace, to be transfigured, to take the opportunity to change what we ought to change but have not.

Providence people: a reflection for Providence Associate rite of first commitment

Posted on November 18, 2017 at 3:33 am by

Let’s abide in being Sisters of Providence and Providence Associates during the coming year and cultivate the union among us by:
So loving our neighbor that we foster community and communion wherever we go.
So showing mercy that we engender hope wherever we go.
So doing justice that our actions and advocacy lead to change and reduce the violence and hatred in our world.
The world does need us for this. And what a sweet and powerful Providence that would be.
