Welcome to the Alumnae/i Association of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods! Since Saint Mother Theodore Guerin accepted her first student at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods Academy in 1841, thousands of women and men have been taught by Sisters of Providence in elementary school, high school or college.

We want everyone to share in the rich tradition of the Sisters of Providence and our Providence spirituality. Whether it is through events planned all across the United States for alumnae/i, through newsletters or e-newsletters mailed around the world or through keeping in touch on Facebook alumnae/i groups, the Sisters of Providence will support the alumnae/i associations in their endeavors to keep classmates connected.

The Mission Advancement office will continue to serve the need of our alumnae/i assocations.

Calling all alumnae/i: update your information

students at Our Lady of Providence High School in Clarksville, Ind.

Members of the first class at Providence High School, Clarksville, Indiana, confer with Sister Marian Thomas Kinney about an upcoming project. The student in the center of the front row is Ann Margaret O’Hara, who entered the Congregation after graduation in 1955 and went on to become the Sisters of Providence’s 17th general superior in 2001.

We need your help!

Our current database is incomplete. There are many gaps to be filled in and this is only possible with your help. If you, a family member, a friend, neighbor, etc., are a graduate of a Sisters of Providence school, we urge you to help us update our information using the form below.

These updates are very important because the Mission Advancement office maintains database information for all alumnae of Sister of Providence formerly sponsored high schools. These names and addresses are pulled for your associations to help plan reunions. If you have additional corrections/additions about contact information (mailing address, email address or phone number) please email cdavis@spsmw.org or call 812-535-2804.

Fill out my online form.

Alumnae/i relations contact

Alumnae of Providence Juniorate/Aspirancy gathered after Mass for this group photo during their 2-Day Reunion Celebration.

Each alumnae/i association has a page, which you will find in the menu to the left. Most associations have a volunteer alumnae/i coordinator, whose contact information will be listed on your page. Most likely, these graduates will be able to answer your questions! For other alumnae/i relations questions, please contact Connie Gualano, alumnae/i relations and planned giving manager/grant writer at cgualano@spsmw.org or at 812-535-2811.
