centerpieceThe Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Dinner is held annually to honor faithful supporters of the Sisters of Providence including Tree of Life members, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Foundation members, Rooted in Providence honorees and award recipients of Queen Amelia, Sarah & Joseph Thralls and Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Companions Awards. The dinner is typically held the first Saturday in June.

Our 2017 Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Dinner was held June 3 in O’Shaughnessy Dining Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, with more than 300 attendees. The dinner affords the Sisters of Providence and Mission Advancement staff members the opportunity to greet long-time donors and to meet others for the first time. Invitations are sent in late April to anyone who gives a gift of $25 or more past year. It’s easy to give by clicking here. Click on the links above to read more about the 2017 award recipients.
