We’re so excited to welcome Providence Associates and other members of the Providence Community to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for our annual meeting June 24-26!

This year we’ve improved the annual meeting to allow more time for the full Providence Community to be together as we combine the Providence Associate Annual Meeting with the beginning of the Sisters of Providence Annual Meeting. We hope as many Providence Associates and Candidate Associates as possible can attend.

The meeting will begin Saturday, June 24 and will conclude late afternoon on Monday, June 26.

See below for the full event schedule.

Registration deadline is May 19, 2023.
