In the tradition of our foundress, we serve society’s most vulnerable

Our foundress, Mother Emilie Gamelin, made it her mission to care for the needy
and vulnerable citizens of Montreal. As her influence grew, and was formalized
in the order she founded, we, the Sisters of Providence, have maintained and
expanded that focus.

Social Justice

We respond to the cry of the poor – women, children and Earth – with concrete actions.

Women and Children

Sisters of Providence, Mother Joseph Province, hear the cry of the poor, many of whom are women and children.

Reclaiming Earth

Earth sustainability is the focus of the Sisters of Providence’s Reclaiming Earth Committee.

El Salvador

In 1995, five Sisters of Providence were impelled by the charity of Christ to establish a mission in El Salvador.
