Our ministries are diverse and fulfilling. They continue to evolve and change to address the needs in our society. Our ministries extend to the sick in hospitals, nursing homes and homes for the aged. We are also actively involved in pastoral spiritual ministries, retreats and spiritual direction. We continue to minister to aboriginal people and ethnic groups, sponsor refugee families, help with food banks and provide safe interim housing for abused women and children.
Today, the works of the Sisters of Providence in western Canada are not identified as quickly as in the past when we had a greater presence in the many Providence institutions. Changes in society, in the Church and in religious life has given us the opportunity to be involved, individually or in small numbers, in ministries not directly associated with the religious community. The nature of our call, however, has not changed. The ministries we choose and the service we give remain driven by our mission to manifest the Providence of God by imitating the compassion of Mary at the foot of the Cross.
