1 Sisters of Providence Road Saint Mary-of-the-Woods IN 47876 USA
The Sisters of Providence were founded in 1840 in West-Central Indiana by Saint Mother Theodore Guerin and her five sister companions from France. Their mission was to bring the gift of education to the young people of the wilderness and to serve as witnesses of God''s love. They set about these tasks with great faith and determination, succeeded in establishing schools and orphanages, tending to the sick among their neighbors and sharing the light of God''s Providence with whomever they met.Now, in modern times, the Sisters of Providence have expanded their mission to include non-traditional forms of education outside of the classroom. Today you will find the sisters educating the public about environmental and social justice issues, serving as chaplains in prisons and hospitals, providing homes for foster children, advocating for the homeless and rural poor, operating food pantries and a free medical clinic, and counseling families and the elderly. Wherever there is need of God''s healing and love, a Sister of Providence will serve.
