When you volunteer for the Sisters of Providence you help continue the mission that Saint Mother Theodore began back in 1840. We help our volunteers find the right opportunity that fits their interests and passions. Some of our volunteers keep a regular schedule and while others help out as their time permits. Volunteering is a great way to meet people, gain experience, and boost your confidence. Volunteer opportunities with the Sisters of Providence include visiting patients in health care, leading tour groups, answering phones, maintaining the grounds, working in the organic gardens, helping with alpacas and assisting at special events. To learn more about volunteering contact Sister Rebecca Keller at 812-535-2878.
