Sisters of Providence remember Archbishop Emeritus Daniel M. Buechlein

Posted on January 31, 2018 at 5:05 am by

Archbishop Emeritus Daniel M. Buechlein’s passing has rekindled many warm memories for the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

Intersectionality – what is it?

Posted on January 19, 2018 at 9:30 am by

Today, even as random violence seems to become the norm in our country, there are some for whom violence and discrimination are nothing new. Whole classes of people face discrimination on a daily basis because of how their realities overlap: discrimination in housing, the workplace, our churches, our criminal justice system, health care, our immigration system.

2017 reflection for Foundation Day

Thanks, in part, to the latest volume of the SP history written by Sister Maureen Abbott, “New Lights from Old Truths,” we have cast new light on a saying of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. During instructions with the novices, Mother Thedore tells them that she doesn’t have new things to say to them, but she  Continue Reading »

Faithfulness and God’s mission: a Foundation Day reflection

Posted on October 22, 2017 at 4:46 am by

I find strength in the passages written by Mother Theodore that are oft quoted and perhaps even more so in the lesser-known stories of her day-to-day life. She walked the grounds of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods and cared so much for the fledgling school, its students and the teachers.

• Using Earth’s resources in a sustainable manner (Care for Creation); and

2017 Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Feast Day reflection

Posted on October 4, 2017 at 5:05 am by

Happy Feast! I think Mother Theodore might agree that the best part of her being declared a saint is the opportunity it has given us as her beloved community to come together to pray, to sing, to enjoy each other’s presence, to be in communion with one another, to recommit ourselves to carrying on her  Continue Reading »
