The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods are a community of vowed Catholic women religious. Inspired by our foundress Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, we are passionate about our lives of prayer, education, service and advocacy.
Live joyfully! Single, Catholic women ages 18-42 are invited to explore a fulfilling life as a Sister of Providence. All women and men of faith are invited to join the family of Providence as Providence Associates.
“One of the reasons I joined the Sisters of Providence was because when I watched them, they were happy. They seemed to like one another and they seemed to enjoy what they were doing. The deep down desire really was to serve God, to be for others.”
Sister Jenny Howard
“There is value in living an intentional faith-filled and faith-driven life.”
