Editor’s note:

Can it really be 15 years since hundreds of Providence pilgrims – Sisters of Providence, Providence Associates, family and friends – traveled to the Vatican for the beatification of foundress Blessed Emilie Gamelin? Indeed, it has been, and on Sunday, October 9, a special liturgy was held in the chapel at St. Joseph Residence to celebrate the anniversary. The celebrant was Father Ignatius Ohno, SJ. Providence of God, we thank you for all!

<![CDATA[Vietnamese Martyrs Church hosts vow ceremony for Sister Hong Nga Nguyen]]> Sister Hong Nga Nguyen, who came to Seattle from Vietnam as a 20-year-old in November 2006 to explore the possibilities of religious life, is overjoyed and overwhelmed by how much of God’s graces and blessings she has received since then. “If you dedicate your life to God totally, what can you lose? That’s it, God! I’m taken!”

That is the exuberant spirit with which she professed perpetual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience as a Sister of Providence in a liturgy at the Vietnamese Martyrs Church in Tukwila, Wash.
