Associates of the Congregation of Divine Providence (ACDPs) are women and men who have experienced a call to live the mission and charism of the Congregation of Divine Providence within their particular lifestyle.

CDP Associates commit themselves in their individual settings, to collaborate with the Sisters in carrying out the mission of Jesus to bring good news to the world that God loves and provides for all creation.  Associates also live the spirituality of the Congregation by manifesting confidence in a provident God who guides, loves and cares for all creation.

New Associates receive the ACDP pin
from Sister Lucille Ann Fritsch

Hallmarks of the ACDP

  • Evidence of Providence spirituality in one’s life
  • Fidelity to personal prayer
  • Participation periodically in Congregational liturgies, prayer, designated gatherings, discussions, meals, faith sharing, and on-going formation in CDP spirituality and mission
  • Public witness to the Gospel by one’s life and work

The bond between Sisters and Associates consists in living the Congregation’s charism of trust in a loving God and expressing that charism in service to others.  CDP Associates benefit from sharing in the daily prayer of the Sisters and other Associates.  They have access to CDP publications and the community website.  They also receive the spiritual and emotion support from the Sisters and other Associates in difficult and joyful times, while benefitting from their experience of community with the CDPs and other Associates and the worldwide Congregations of Sisters of Providence founded by Blessed John Martin Moye.

Upon requesting affiliation with the Congregation, and participating in an Associate Formation Process, CDP Associates are formally accepted as lay associates.
