Sisters of Providence http://www.sistersofprovidence.net Daring to live our charism in an evolving world. <![CDATA[Mother Joseph Province sisters put their efforts into advocacy]]> http://www.sistersofprovidence.net/news.php?id=285 What do Sisters of Providence in Mother Joseph Providence do today, now that they no longer are running hospitals or schools? The answer is: Plenty!

Even the most elderly sisters are engaged in a ministry of prayer and presence. For others who remain active in the community, the ministry of advocacy – meeting needs and influencing policy – puts them at the forefront of a host of issues related to their central focus of social justice, reclaiming Earth, women and children in need and much more.
