Without spirituality, there would be no religious community.

Spirituality lies at the heart of all we do. It informs our compassion and compels us to draw nearer to God and serve those around us — just as it did our foundress, Mother Emilie Gamelin.

The Sisters of Providence are women who have converted their spirituality into commitment — and enjoy the blessings that result.

Here is what they say about the quality of spirituality, without which the religious community would not exist:

The love that Christ has shown towards me is so powerful that it overflows. I pray daily for an increase of God’s love in my heart, and that I might have the compassionate heart that Jesus had.

Sister Clare Lentz


We inherited the virtues of humility, simplicity and charity from Emilie Gamelin. They are key to our spirituality.
