A wonderful time to get to know the sisters of these Woods

As Providence would have it, interest in religious life with our congregation is still alive and well! Most recently, five young women joined the Sisters of Providence New Membership team at the Fall Discernment Weekend, which was held during the Saint Mother Theodore Guerin FEST at Saint Mary-of-
