On Saturday, Nov. 12, we welcomed Providence Associate candidates for an orientation at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Over the coming year, the 29 candidates will journey with a Sister of Providence or Providence Associate companion as they reflect on Providence spirituality and the mission of love, mercy and justice.
