Vocation

Who We are

As “women of Providence”, we invest our spiritual energy and anchor our actions in the realities and the needs of the society of our time, choosing to live in solidarity with the most destitute.

What We do

Our life as Sisters of Providence revolves around three elements;  SPIRITUALITY, COMMUNITY AND MINISTRY.

Our Mission

To be the human face of our Provident God is to place ourselves at the service of compassionate love and prophetic solidarity with the poor.For us Sisters of Providence, the poor are those whose needs are not met, the victims of injustice, the rejected, the marginalized and the voiceless.

Our History

Blessed Emilie Tavernier Gamelin Founded the congregation of the Sisters of Providence, a catholic religious community, in Montreal in 1843.  In response to the needs of the poor, the sick and marginalized.  Thousands of women of different origins and social status joined the community over the ears.  Inspired by the mystry of our Provident God, and the compassion of our Mother of Sorrows, Mary at the foot of the Cross.

Nourished in Prayer

Our deep relationship with God and the people lies at the heart of our experience and spirituality which permeates our work and daily life.  

Our life of prayer includes comtemplative listening, dialogue and discernment in our decision making.

Supported In Community

We, Sisters of Providence are an international, multicultural, inter-generational community of religious women.  Living in community enables us to love, support, challenge and encourage each other.  Through personal and communal grouth, we witness to Gospel Values.
