March 25, 2018, marked the opening of the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Sisters of Providence in Montreal in 1843. The year-long celebration will include special local Masses, prayer services and outreach to the poor and vulnerable members of our communities in the spirit of Blessed Emilie Gamelin, foundress.
The closing of the 175th anniversary drew more than 500 sisters, staff and guests for a celebratory Mass and grand luncheon on March 29, 2019 at the mother house in Montreal. The days prior offered opportunities for tours of the Footsteps of Emilie, archives and museum, along with a day of reflection about the charism, mission and spirituality of the Sisters of Providence.
