Sisters and residents of Miracle Home.

Sister Rose

Sister Rose Chiu serves adults who are elderly, disabled, and poor in Taiwan. A day care serves those clients as well as those suffering from memory loss.

Sister Dorothy collects donated yarn which she
then delivers to men and women in prison. The
inmates knit the baby yarn into baby hats, blankets
and booties for needy families (in conjunction with Union Hospital). They create warm afghans for the elderly in nursing homes with the regular yarn.

Retreat presenter Sister Paula Damiano, SP, makes a point as she speaks.

Sister Paula

Sisters Paula and Jan inspire people to grow spiritually with individual and group faith-filled programs and retreats. People of all faith traditions are encouraged and strengthened by these offerings.


Sister Jean

Sister Jean benefits from the SP Retirement Fund, while we continue to benefit from her volunteer services as Clinical Care Office clerical assistant, the flower and environment caretaker of St. Joseph's Lake and her weekly assistance at Providence Food Pantry, West Terre Haute.


“My giving has been further nurtured by the ministries that reflect ‘breaking boundaries, creating hope.’ These evolving ministries, based on social justice, not only bring me joy, but also illustrate the continuing vitality of the Sisters of Providence.”
