Who Are the Providence Associates?
The Providence Associates are people from different backgrounds who all wish to share the Mission and the spirituality of the Sisters of Providence. They are women and men for whom Gospel values form the main force in their lives. After a period of orientation and discernment, they participate in a ceremony where they commit to share the Providence spirituality and to collaborate in the Mission of the Sisters of Providence.
The Associates are motivated by the same spirit and the same Charism as the Sisters of Providence, which is the gift of showing the Providence of God and the compassion of Our Mother of Sorrows. They demonstrate this by serving the poor and offering them compassionate love. They also let God be known and loved by the example of their lives and actions.
The Providence Associates Bulletin is published three times a year in three languages. It tells the main events of the various Providence Associates groups, as well as reflections and descriptions of some of their works.
