Ministry, Community & Spirituality

 

Ministry, Community & Spirituality

The life of a Sister of Providence revolves around three elements: her ministry, her spirituality, and her community.

Ministry

As you read the stories of the sisters profiled in this section, you will find that almost to a one, the sisters find great satisfaction in their work.

Some have served in a handful of ministries, while others have hopscotched across the full range of opportunities offered by the Sisters of Providence. In either case, the sisters find their joy in service.

Community

Life has changed since the days when a new sister routinely entered a convent.

But community remains an important part of a sister’s life, providing support alongside opportunities for personal growth.

Spirituality

Her relationship with God lies at the heart of a sister’s experience. Her spirituality suffuses her work and carries her through hard times.

For some sisters, the opportunity to deepen her relationship with Jesus is key to her decision to join the community.

Community remains an important part of a sister’s life, providing support alongside opportunities for personal growth.
