2022
General Chapter Orientations

The Sisters of Providence have their General Chapter every five years. Sister-delegates from all the entities of the Congregation gather for this meeting, in which they discern orientations for the next five years. These orientations guide the Congregation in its decisions and actions.

 

Here are the 2022 General Chapter Orientations.

Inspired by the call of God to live our Providence spirituality and Mission, we commit to the implementation of the governance model, as we grow in our congregational identity as one canonical entity.

To this end, we engage as individuals and communities to protect and nourish our spiritual heritage through consultation and evolving processes leading to unity.

Thus we commit ourselves:

MISSION
  • To live our charism of compassion with Providence Associates and collaborators, by being attentive to the signs of the times, by responding to suffering persons, to situations of injustice, and to the needs of our “common home”.
INITIAL AND CONTINUING FORMATION
  • To journey together to deepen and share our spirituality and theology of Providence, for a better understanding of social issues, such as integral ecology, racism, gender equality, interculturality, amongst others, to attain a more unified congregational vision.
  • To engage in creating welcoming spaces in support of vocation promotion and discernment for religious life.
GOVERNANCE
  • To deepen our understanding of the governance model and put it into practice, to revitalize and reorganize our community life in local communities and ministries, and reinvigorate our Mission.
