Mission Statement of the Sisters of Divine Providence
We Sisters of Divine Providence are a community of women religious rooted in our confidence that God is provident. We participate in the mission of Jesus by responding to the needs of the time through ministry and service. We live our lives with complete trust in a provident God --guiding, loving, and caring for all creation.
We believe in the reality of Providence. We believe that the movements of history in which we participate are guided by the loving power of God. We believe that God cares for all creation. We believe that we have an active role in this creative redemption because God works in us and through us.
Spiritual Reflections / Moments
Twenty Second Sunday in Ordinary Time by Sister Bernadette Bezner
CDP Affiliate, Melissa Cessac explains: "My peaceful little prayer corner. The quilt is from my dear and talented Aunt Jan. I have my Blessed Mother and Child statue, an Our Lady of Guadalupe candle, an angel praying, a cross with my favorite quote by Blessed Theresa, a rosary that belonged to my great grandmother, a clay bowl with a towel to symbolize service, holy water from Lourdes, a prayer box my sister, Kim made me, and a beautiful and simple cross made from wood from a tree in Haiti that I received the first time I went on mission from Fr. Glen. Each item is or symbolizes significant things in my faith life. They are all an incredible reminder of God's love and Providence in my life!
The Sisters of Divine Providence welcome their newest member, Sister Megan Grewing, into the Novitiate. Please join them in praying for her as she continues her journey with Providence.
