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.
The following spiritual reflections were prepared by individual Sisters of Divine Providence:
